La Grenouille qui se veut faire aussi grosse que le Boeuf: Fable de La Fontaine.
La Fontaine, Jean de
Like the other books in the Gai Moulin series, this book builds off of a fascinating concept: a second, longer story echoes the lesson of the fable. Here that story is Le Géant et le Nain. The dwarf gets angry when his friend the giant announces that he will have something surprising to offer at the town festival. The giant jumps gracefully from a tower. The jealous dwarf tries to jump down from the roof of a house but plummets like a rock and is seriously hurt. The last illustration is a nice detail from the festival picture. The picture for the fable itself is very good: the bull cries over the exploded frog. Mulder appears nowhere in the booklet, but it is on both the front and the back cover.
