Abstract
I have read the first ten pages of this surprising little book, and it is hard to stop. The book is building a full narrative out of a series of fables. And the subject, at least so far, is: fables. A young chick is challenging her mother about the wisdom of fables. The chick even tells a good one of her own: Die Mäuse (8) on collective bargaining of tax-paying mice against a tax-collecting cat. My sense is that the chick means this fable as a counter-fable against the received wisdom of fables that she finds boring. I hope I can find the occasion to read further. I will be curious to see how the argument comes out. Fritz Winterling seems to have been, among other things, a writer of school textbooks. The vignettes seem to be more printer's devices than anything connected with the overall story or the individual fables that make it up.
