Le courbeau et le renard
This is one of six books in a series. I am sorry to have missed the series. Now only two of them seem available at reasonable prices, and here is the second of those two. The pamphlet offers delightful cartoons, starting with the front-cover picture of the crow sitting on a construction beam with a hard hat and grasping his piece of cheese. Here that piece of cheese is a good contemporary sandwich. As this presentation develops, we find Romeo the crow suspended from the Eiffel Tower and Arsène the fox climbing its girders. Soon it seems that this venue is undergoing a movie shoot. The fox gets into the workers' suspended box with the crow and continues his pitch. Soon the crow sings. He lets go of the sandwich, and the whole crew is after it! The fox gets it and quickly lowers the box. As always, the crow is left alone and deprived in the end. Good fun!
