Abstract
"Des albums aux illustrations drôles et modernes pour décourvrir toute la saveur des textes de La Fontaine." In this pamphlet, Bossrez's animals are highly stylized, almost Picassoesque or cubist. The frog, for example, that appears on the title-page has the elements of a frog put together quite creatively. Both the frogs and the ox wear swimming suits or shorts. The double-page 6-7 shows the frog working out in gymnastics adapted to life on a creek. The inflated frog on 10 is wonderful. This artist resists showing the explosion itself. I still need to find the missing four booklets in this series. From my first attempts, I would say that it will not be easy. 16 pages. About 5½" x 7½".
