Le Monde Magique des Fables de la Fontaine
There are 190 pages in this large-format (8 x 11) book, including a T of C at the end. Most fables receive one or two pages. The illustrations show up in a pleasing diversity. There are full-page illustrations both in black-and-white and in color; there are partial-page designs in both formats; and finally there are in both formats some small repeated designs and endpieces, sometimes with a subject unrelated to the fable at hand. Among the best of the illustrations are Le Chat, la Belette, et le Petit Lapin (24); Le Corbeau Voulant Imiter l'Aigle (36); Le Singe et le Dauphin (41), which pictures both animals underwater; DS (78); La Grenouille et le Rat (87, also on the cover); Le Rat Qui s'Est Retiré du Monde (117); and Le Lion Abattu par lHomme (131). The colored illustrations are heavy on pastel colors and seem almost to be done with a colored pencil and not a brush.
