dc.description.abstractHere is the German version of the very good fable book published in 2010 in English by Andersen Press. As I wrote there, Testa's style remains similar to the style he showed in his 1989 Barron edition encompassing twenty fables. Here he has tripled the number of fables. The inspiration of some scenes remains the same. The illustrations there were branded by the unusual multi-colored borders. Here the illustrations take up the whole of each right-hand page, while texts are on the left-hand pages. The sleeping hare there had been playing solitaire. Now he is on an ipod (title-page and 31)! WC there and here are the same in inspiration, but the venue has changed (11). The cover has a fine FC, which can also be found on 15. There is real distance between these two characters! FS (29) may have improved. The Tortoise and the Eagle (33) is a fine illustration; it gives us a sense of the proud tortoise's smallness. I love the cat hanging with one eye open and fixed on the mouse under the dresser (35). DLS is told twice to accommodate two different versions (38-41). The Lion, the Bear and the Fox (86) does a good job of showing the large beasts' exhaustion. This version substitutes a trap of sticks for the hunter's bow in AD (74). The Lion, Ass, and Fox is also well done: I have seldom seen such a pile of booty (89)! There is a small head-piece for each text besides the full-page illustration. The two illustrations often work together well. A good example is FWT (84): the headpiece illustrates the trap and the severed tail. The full-page illustration shows the fox without a tail trying to persuade the other foxes to get rid of their tails too. The rhyming morals added here are often quite clever. This is one of several books I found visiting Germany. I had too much luggage so I ordered them as soon as I arrived back home!en_US
