Abstract
The first English version of Franko's 1890 classic Lys Mykyta. From my impressions, Franko stays very close to the Reynard legend. An Aesopic reader will be happy to find several fables appearing as episodes with illustration, particularly The Price Tag on the Horse's Hoof (107), The Wolf's Frozen Tail (129), and The Fox and the Wolf in the Well (130). Kurelek's seventy-two drawings are very well done. The dust jacket offers a good lead on Franko's theme, taken from the Ukrainian proverb: Where there is wisdom, there you will find good luck. Note that the cat bites off the chicken-farmer's nose, not his genitals (39). This book has been offered to me for several times the price I paid here.
