dc.description.abstractHere is the 2009 original behind a smaller book published two years later in a different format by the same publisher. That was a small 32-page paperback about 6¼ x 7 containing thirteen fables. This is a 125-page large-format hardbound book measuring 9¼ x 11¼ presenting sixty-two fables. There is a T of C at the beginning and an AI at the end of the book. The illustrations are the same, though in smaller format, for those fables represented in the later booklet. The fable text takes one page or, in two cases, two. The single text pages are all left-hand pages. The right-hand page then presents a full-page colored illustration. I am surprised at FC . Do we not need a crow in a tree to make this fable work (9)? The illustration for GA (11) is surprisingly wistful and contemplative. The frog in OF has an overblown belly and chest that is wonderfully comic (15). FG (25) is cleverly shown from above and makes a fine front-cover illustration. In the illustration for The Lion Going to War, Susini cleverly hides the courier rabbit, just as the other animals overlook him (79). The stag with horns caught in the branches is holding a mirror (83). The milkmaid on 99 is losing not only her pail of milk, shown here in mid fall, but some of her eggs besides. There is a great Grippemenaud on 101! Other fine illustrations include The Bear and the Gardener (105) and The Cat and the Two Sparrows (118).en_US
