Abstract
Twenty fables are presented in this large-format book with FM on the cover and dust-jacket. Though the visual styles vary from fable to fable, almost all are strong in their use of color. The first fable presents a new variation for me on an old fable. The moon announces a music concert after the rainy season to console the various creatures. The snail does not come despite a repeated invitation from the moon. He claims that he wants to stay home. So the moon has him stay home forever by being stuck to his house. This story seems a variation on Zeus' angry fixing of the turtle's shell on his back as the home that he must take with him, since he would not leave home for Zeus' celebration. One of the strongest visual styles appears in The Horse and the Wolf. Do not miss the caved-in jaw of the wolf on 41. It seems as though the milkmaid curtsies to an imagined beau and so loses her pail of milk (65). There is a T of C with visual artists on 5 and an account of their careers on 126-7.
