Abstract
This book snuck up on me. The pictures are adequate. The poetic renditions of LaFontaine are good, brief enough, and sometimes quite witty. Surprises: the frogs and rabbits are both cowards; the crow is flattered for its body but mocked in its voice; the fox and the goat go into the well together; and the wolf knows the lamb password but still does not get in. New to me: The Animals with the Plague and Two Rats and an Egg.
