dc.description.abstractHere is a large-format (9 x 11½) book I would describe as like a recent British Milo Winter. It offers some 108 classic fables with 72 new illustrations, all in colour, as the back cover proclaims. The illustrations, in various partial-page sizes, are classic: revealing, helpful, consonant with the tellings of the stories. Are the versions the same ones that Ruth Spriggs published with Frank Baber's illustrations twenty years earlier? The title-page illustration looks quite similar to things I remember from Baber. There are a T of C and two pages of background at the book's beginning. Particularly pleasant or revealing illustrations include The mountain (in labor, 8-9); WS, with the man taking a nap under a tree (15); The wolf and his shadow (26); and DLS (41). Here it is a grandson that joins a miller and his donkey (70-71). Less known -- and well illustrated with three pictures -- is The wolf and the donkey (58-59).en_US
