Abstract
La Fontaine's texts are presented straight, a few lines per page, with accompanying footnotes for antiquated vocabulary. Hulne does an exquisite job of rendering both the narrow slit through which the weasel enters the cellar and the tummy that prevents her from getting out again. Similarly Hulne underscores La Fontaine's particular point in his presentation of the second fable. Bertrand the Monkey is throwing chestnuts happily in the air as a maid with a broom chases Raton the Cat away. Princes only hurt themselves in doing the bidding of flattering kings.
