I believe that the title translates into something like "'The Fox and the Pike' and Other Stories." There are about eighty fables on some 128 pages. Virtually all come from the three fabulists mentioned in the subtitle. The delight of this book is well described in the publisher's blurb: "The author told both known and lesser-known fables, and through our website, we invited children from all corners of the country to pick, read and send us an illustration. We collected hundreds of pictures and selected those that ended up in this amazing book. They show that great illustrators grow up among children." My own favorites among them include FS (86); death and the woodman (91); the cat and mouse on 105; and the shadow man on 110. The title-fable "Mlsna Stika" is on 27-28: A court is ready to sentence the pike for a variety of crimes, when the fox suggests that they drown him in a stream. All find his suggestion brilliant. Clever fox! Lucky fox-friend the pike!
