Abstract
This 8½" square unpaginated paperback booklet offers eight fables in full color. Each fable receives about six pages. The colored illustrations cover whole pages, into which several verses are inserted per page. The art may well be computer generated. Each fable has a prose moral added. In GA, it is rain rather than snow that signals the season of hunger. The full page of the crow pinning his head against the tree in shame in FC is well done. Again a full page is dominated by the bloated tummy of the expanding frog as we gaze into her eyeballs bursting with bloodshot. WL concludes very well with just the dark woods: the lamb is gone. In the last scene of "Death and the Woodman," Death with his sickle is flying away. Also TH, GGE, and TMCM. At the end is a surprising but helpful lexicon of unusual vocabulary, arranged by fable. The two covers together present a scene with La Fontaine and these fables' characters.
