Abstract
"The Baker Fables" is an enjoyable little (4"x 5¾") two-staple pamphlet of 12 shiny pages presenting five fables, each with a full-page colored illustration and the other page quoting some of La Fontaine's fable. The unusual point here is that almost every character, whatever his role in the fable, is somehow a baker and/or is holding some bakery. While the ant decorates a cake, the grasshopper clutches a bagguette. The lamb encountering the wolf is carrying a sack of bagguettes, perhaps to Grandma! While the frog has a cake, the ox has a full loaf, and both wear baker's hats. What a lovely ephemeral gift! Google cannot find another copy.
