dc.description.abstractA curious and delightful book, starting from the cartoon end-papers in mint, black, and white, depicting all sorts of nonsense situations, like a man fishing from a boat with his line resting on dry land. Are those the four fabulists, one in each of the train's four cars--and again on the title-page, each helping to pull up someone from a well? Each of the four fabulists has five fables here, except for Franc-Nohain, who has four. GGE (7) has a fine illustration, as does Florian's Le Singe qui montre la Lanterne magique (17). (The monkey did everything the way his master had done it, except that he forgot to turn on the magic lantern's light!). One of the best from Franc-Nohain is La Révolte des Ascenseurs (20): they returned from their newfound liberty, because they had forgotten how to use it. Another fine Franc-Nohain fable is Le Bouc qui s'était fait raser à l'Américaine (24). Samivel's own fables at the end are good reflective pieces. In love most humans understand themselves about as well as a whale understands a taxicab (34). The fables here have something to say to people, and the delightful illustrations often catch the humor.en_US
