dc.description.abstractThis delightful picture book makes a point of putting appropriate clothes on its animals, right from the suspenders under the turtle's shell on the cover. The camel wears a fez! The stork wears a hat when she visits the fox but is without it when she hosts him. Unpaginated. I like the expressive art, e.g., of the suicidal bunnies and frightened frogs. Each pair of pictures adds a different color to black-and-white. There are good illustrations of the crab and his mother, of the ass kicking the wolf, and of the wolf and his shadow. FM is differently told: the male frog only pretends to like the female mouse and ties them together early. TMCM is considerably shortened! The Kid and the Wolf has a fine moral: If you put off doing a thing, it may never get done. There are questionable morals to several fables: It is useless to try and do really impossible things (The Tortoise and the Eagle); Make the most of the things you have and do not envy other people (FG); and If you rightly own a good thing, be sure you do not lose it for something you are not certain about (DS). A note in the Bannister copy gives 1947 as the publication date. I had earlier guessed at 1945.en_US
