Fables de Jean de La Fontaine Lues par Gérard Philipe et ses Compères
No Thumbnail Available
This is a fine book with an excellent compact disc. Twenty fables appear, with at least one fine, detailed, full-page colored illustration per fable. The best among these illustrations may be for The Coach and the Fly (5), as the mosquito stands sweating after the coach can start downhill; for The Small Fish and the Angler (11); for GA (21); for The Wolves and the Sheep (32), where wolf and sheep bump fists to clinch their deal; and for OF (34). The illustrations are lively. There is a T of C on the back cover. The actors on the disc come from Le Théâtre Français. The tracks feature only voices, but they are excellent and nicely varied voices. The French keep on presenting their La Fontaine with distinction!
