Abstract
I am happy to see that Hülsmann has done yet another book of fables. She had already done volumes of La Fontaine for Meisinger in 1987 and 1989. This book follows their format. Here again the T of C faces the title-page. There are fourteen fables. The Bluebirds and the Screechowl is excellent. The latter is tied to a pole. The former come by to mock him--and are caught in the fowler's lime. The falcon dives underwater to catch the duck, but the duck leaves the water to go flying off as the falcon drowns. In a reverse of many fables, a millet seed attacked by an ant pleads to be allowed to develop. I will thank you a hundredfold. And it does! The rat is trapped in her hole by a weasel waiting just outside it, but a cat eats the weasel. The rat comes forth to offer thanks and enjoy freedom, but is immediately eaten by the same cat. The style of the art is the same as that in the other Hülsmann books: contemporary, lavish, crayon-acrylic drawings. The best of the art may be The Ape and the Little Birds, The Falcon and the Duck, and The Rat, the Weasel, and the Cat.
