dc.description.abstractThis more contemporary version follows the Homeric parody through the death of Crum-snatcher and the description of arms. Thereafter it becomes original. Puff-jaw the frog, avoiding a water-snake, abandons Crum-snatcher the mouse, and the latter drowns. This incident will ultimately occasion the war. Puff-jaw denies his part in Crum-snatcher's death. The two sides arm. Gwynne does a good job of making the difficult scene realizable. There are good illustrations of the battle on 34-35 and 37. A detail of the former is on the covers, nicely reversed from front to back. There is one great individual battle: Pond-larker versus Troglodyte. The former dies; then rains come and end the battle. Though I am happy to include the book in this collection, the only connection with fable comes in the sub-title.en_US
