dc.description.abstractFifteen fables on 40 large-format pages. I am fortunate to have found a whole set of the first printing at once, and at an attractive price! The books are a further use of 200 Aesop's Fables: Favourite Fables to Share, which Miles Kelly published in 2012. Here fables are not grouped as there. Still, all of the fables in this volume were a part of the Mad Mistakes section in that book. Though based on the earlier book, each of these pamphlets is larger in format than that book was. Though the illustrations stay proportionately the same, I notice subtle changes in the texts and titles. Thus The Goatherd and the Goat there (306) has become here The Goatherder and the Goat (36). Among the best illustrations are DS (5) and BW (18-19). After having his claws and teeth removed, the lion in love returned to the girl's parents. But of course, this time they just laughed in his face, for now they had no reason to be afraid of him (16). Both text and image are well done in The Donkey and its Driver (28). The thick, slippery pages still contain little characters around the edges. Throughout this volume, the frame including these animals is the same. There are grasshoppers along the top ridge and a rooster and a dog on the bottom. One of these symbols appears with each moral. Every fable is illustrated.en_US
