dc.description.abstractThis book is based on a smaller-format, shorter hardbound book by the same publisher in 2006. Finding the book was a lucky moment during a chance stop at a corner bookstore for new books in Paris soon after my arrival. There are now seventeen fables included, six more than in the earlier volume. The new fables include The Old Man and Three Youths; The Animals Sick from the Plague; The Two Roosters; LM; BC; and The Pig, the Goat, and the Lamb. Of these the firt two may be the strongest in their illustrations. Other additions include a beginning T of C and a pictured title-page for each fable. The eleven repeating cartoons are identical but larger here. As I wrote there, the fables are portrayed faithfully, each first in a normal text before its graphic presentation. Many fables are followed by a short section of La Fontaine's biography by Marion Lecoq. The back cover again offers a picture for each fable and the artist for the fable; now these cartoon titles follow the order in which they are found in the book. The artistic styles are highly different from each other. I mentioned there the strong impact made by CW by Eden Pacino and Boris Joly-Erard (41-52). The artists here are open to updating the fables. Thus the tortoise of TH (67-75) is a young woman with a huge backpack; she does carry her house! The cart that is stuck is really an autobus overloaded with baggage (77-84). This penchant may go too far in TT (97-107) when the birds' machine turns out not to be a simple stick but an air-balloon with two baskets connected with a stick. Why could the turtle not ride in one of the baskets?en_US
