Abstract
Here is a large-format, well bound children's fable book of some 60 pages with a T of C at the back. Each fable gets a page or two. The colored illustrations are simple, even naïve, and engaging. Have I seen them before? I can find nothing by Stévano in what I have. A good sample illustration of Stévano's illustrations is La Zorra, el Lobo y el Caballo on 55. I am surprised to find a fable El Mono y los Pescadores (14) attributed to Aesop. The monkey does what the fishermen had done, that is, he throws a net. But because he does not know what he is doing, he gets tangled up in it and drowns. I have seldom seen as direct an attack as the peacock makes on the crow in BF (16): he pecks at the crow's head, which is flat against the ground. BW is attributed to Samaniego (23); I think that it is the only fable here attributed to Samaniego. Iriarte, who has several fables here, contrasts the chicken who cries out to announce that she has laid an egg with the frog who croaks all day and night and ought to be quiet a little (28). Well done!
