Abstract
This large-format pamphlet includes nine fables from Aesop, two from La Fontaine, one from Lobel, and four from Ginsburg. All but the last four have full-page color illustrations. Ginsburg's four stories are apparently four traditional Russian tales; three are familiar to me. Two of the book's morals are particularly apt: You only trick yourself by pretending to be greater or more clever than you really are for DLS (15) and Common sense is often worth more than a whole bunch of tricks for The Cat and the Fox (19). There is a mistake on 41, which claims that Lobel began his career by illustrating other author's books.
