Abstract
A beautifully produced book, set by hand and bound by hand. It contains five fables, the first three of them labelled as Aesop's fables. The Country Mouse & the Subway Mouse (1) is a strong starter for this collection. Its moral: To know your mind, you ought to hear/Two sides to every story. The Cat and the Mice (8), like the previously mentioned fable, has a strong illustration. LM (43) has a different ending: The mouse goes away from the lion unbefriended and unthanked. The Rabbit and the Rat (55) is new to me and engaging. The Old Man and the Sparrows (75) plays on the borders of fable. Its sparrows not only talk; they are polite. Torre's silkscreens are much better than his (or most other people's) verse. The best non-Aesopic illustrations are of the mockingbird (65) and the mock turtle (95).
