Las Más Bellas Fábulas que te contarán muchas veces
No Thumbnail Available
This large-format (over 9½ x 13½) book presents four fables and, at the book's end, a page of games (acti-juegos) for each. The fables are big, colorful, active. El Pícaro Asno tells of the roguish ass who kicks the wolf in the face. This telling makes the wolf vain about the ability of his sharp teeth to do fine work on the nail that bothers the ass. And the nail of new shoes does bother this ass; his braying about it brought the wolf to him in the first place. El lLobo y la Cigüena seems to be pictured and recounted in traditional fashion. El León y la Rata includes a surprising first phase in which the mouse travels a long way, apparently by both train and ship. Una Mona Perezosa is new to me. It tells of a lazy monkey who, having eaten nothing but bananas, does not understand that one breaks open nuts and coconuts and then enjoys the liquid and food inside. The games afterward are cleverly done, especially the two different forms of the game of finding the differences in detail between two similar pictures. I wrote to the website SpanishDict to get help on understanding this title and have received a flurry of helpful answers. The best translation seems to be The most beautiful fables which they will tell you many times.
