Abstract
I was happy to find this reprint online after finding a copy of the first printing in very poor condition. A main purpose of my trying to find it is somewhat frustrated: the fascinating illustrations there are not well rendered here, and only about 15 of the original illustrations there are presented here. This reprint -- apparently the sixth reprint since 1901 -- includes a serious essay by Kathleen Gyssels. The French and Haitian Creole appear on facing pages. The La Fontaine texts have themselves undergone conversion. I can mostly follow them; when it comes to the Creole, I am mostly lost! The cover advertises this book as including a CD, but that did not come with this copy. This is a print-upon-demand book produced in Coppell, TX. "Cric? Crac!" apparently translates in English into "Click!"
