Abstract
Here is one of four books in a series. The prose adaptation helps the reader to pick up La Fontaine's slant, I believe. It lays the story out more fully than La Fontaine's lapidary verse can. The storyteller prolongs the fox's patient wait in hunger for at least a couple of hours. Would the crow be only holding onto the cheese that long? The flattered crow wants to give the world's best concert. "Flatteurs" are often "menteurs," and learning that is worth a cheese. The illustrator's sense of the crow seems strange, but her posing and posturing of the fox is excellent, starting from his nonchalant lean against a tree in the beginning to his boasting wave good-bye with the cheese tucked under his arm. The pages consist of unusually heavy paper.
