dc.description.abstractThis is a curious book, with a fine CD. The unusualness starts with the book's thin, tall format: 5¾ x 9½. The unusualness continues with the twelve full-page colored illustrations. Their style is lively, primitive, spirited, creative. The French keep using their imaginations on La Fontaine, and the results are delightful for the rest of us! There is a strange thing here: many of the illustrations are separated from their texts. Since there is no table of the illustrations, I will list them here with their pages and, if they are separate, the pages of their texts. They are The Weasel in the Granary (17, 15); The Stag Admiring Himself (21, 18); UP (33, 35); The Bulls and the Frogs (41); TH (49, 51); The Old Lion (53); The Lion and the Mosquito (57); WC (69, 66); The Wounded Eagle (77); The Angler and the Small Fish (81, 78); and The Fox and the Goat (85). Let me suggest something engaging about each of three of the best among these. The weasel in the granary has eaten books, not grain! In the illustration for The Bulls and the Frogs, one can see the frogs underwater as well as the bovine love triangle that caused their problems. In The Wounded Eagle, colors help make clear that it is eagle feathers that have mortally wounded this eagle. FC shows up three times: on the cover, on the verso of the title-page, and on 37. The disc has little or no music but very good voices. I will keep the disc in its holder inside the end-paper at the back of the book.en_US
