Abstract
This book of 126 pages has four parts, clearly marked out in the T of C at the end. It may be in the same series as my 1989 Fabulas de Samaniego from Susaeta by way of Suromax. I have long been a fan of Mordillo's illustrations. Again here, the illustrations are lively and witty. Each page offers one fable, with a multi-colored illustration on the same page. I have tried to make a selection of some of Mordillo's most enjoyable illustrations. They might include El león y la cabra (17), in which the lion gestures to the goat to come across the gap between mountain ledges; CJ (30), which I have almost certainly seen in one of Mordillo's other books; Los lobos y los corderos, in which the lambs shove forward the bound-and-gagged dogs to the friendly-looking wolves (45); El niño ladrón y su madre (108), which shows the moment of the first theft; and El joven y el ladrón (117). The milkmaid carries her jug with her hands, not on her head (123); only this fable runs over onto a second page. This is my first book printed in Peru--or having anything to do with Peru. It has a red remainder mark on the bottom edge.
