La Fontaine: Fables
This pleasant children's book handles fifty-nine fables well, with both black-and-white and colored illustrations. Among the best colored illustrations are those presenting WL (24-25), Le Geai Pare des Plumes du Paon (89), and the weeping hare (125). There are some strange combinations of colored and black-and-white illustrations on facing pages (e.g., 16-17, 20-21, and 60-61). The best of the black-and-white illustrations may be the nice spread given to the two rats on 180-81. One reader comments aptly on 94 in reference to the drawings of mother and children You forgot the nose! T of C at the end.
