Here is an extra copy without a dust-jacket. Eleven witty prose fables freely retold to capture the irreverent fun of the original verses. The broken turtle after the fall is a visual delight. There are frequent little animal spectators. I enjoy this art. The moral for FG is good: It wasn't true, of course. But would you rather have the fox sit around all day feeling sorry for himself?
