Zayann: Fables de La Fontaine Français/Créoles
I learned of the existence of this book when I found Zayann II two months ago. This first volume is simpler than that, since it includes only Creole adaptations of La Fontaine and since it has no illustrations other than that on the cover. The presentation is regular: La Fontaine's fable is on the right-hand pages and the Creole adaptation is on the left. The latter is generally considerably longer than La Fontaine's lapidary French. Fifty fables are presented here. This paperback book has seen some wear. It was in some library, whose call number still stands at the base of its spine. Heavy pens and white tapes have blocked out that former owner. There is a crease in the middle of the back cover. There is an AI -- based on La Fontaine's French title -- at the back. I commented then Now I need to find a copy of 'Zayann'! Mission accomplished.
