This is a beautiful limited edition book. It impresses me particularly for its title-page art: a glorious presentation of the two main characters in red, gold, and black. The flutter of feathers around the title is perfect for this story. There is also a good presentation, in black-and-white, of the fox lying in wait on 27. A sampling of the rhyming verse of the translation finds it tight and accurate. It is a pleasure to be able to include a book like this one in the collection!
