This is a paperbound book of 86 pages containing sixteen short stories. My dictionaries tell me that the title translates into something like Greedy Fables or Gluttonous Fables. The back cover advertises Where one discovers the drama of the dog who pretended to read; how the queen of England made a fish blush; why salads restrain themselves from learning mathematics….…. I tried the story about the dog who learned to read and found it amusing. This dog faces a problem and his problem gets a surprising answer. I doubt that what is offered here really consists of fables. So far I think this book offers good fun.
