Abstract
The finely detailed primitive paintings recommend this book highly. They range from full page illustrations down to single figures taking part of a page. Among the best are those of the two old men asking for death, le Malheureux and le Bûcheron (12-13); I think these figures may help readers contrast the two versions as La Fontaine hoped they would. Bour helps one to picture how a cat could have passed for a heap of flour (21). Do not miss Le Lion amoureux (26). The title picture (FM) may be the best of all (31); the frog drags a dripping lily pod up into the air with him. The next page comes back with a nice look at this strange threesome moving into the distance. Among other fine work: The L'Alouette et ses Petites, avec le Maître d'un champ (37) and Le Cerf et la Vigne (43). T of C at the end.
