dc.description.abstractThis book is apparently a derivative of "Le grand livre des fables: Jean de La Fontaine," published by Hemma in 1997. The same illustrations are used, in smaller format, and the same 35 fables appear. A curiosity is that that book used a different cover picture of FC than the illustrations inside the book. So does this book, and the cover picture here is not only different from the FC illustrations inside this book. It is also different from the cover illustration there. Dosimont's style is immediately clear as the same in the two cover illustrations. The pagination on the final T of C is curious because there are no page numbers in the book! This book, like that, sneaks in a fable by Iriarte (68) about two rabbits who argue over what kind of animals are pursuing them -- right up to the point where those animals devour them! Arguing about details but forgetting essentials is not a good plan! As I wrote there, this book includes the illustrations I already knew from two of Dosimont's books for Hemma: "Jean de La Fontaine: Fables Choisies" (1994) and "Jean de La Fontaine: Jolies fables en musique" (1997). Those individual fable illustrations are supplemented by others here, as in the 1997 book. Dosimont's work is lively. He takes a great perspective on "Le petit Poisson et le Pêcheur" (87) by looking up from the depths of the lake to see the bottom of the fisherman's boat. For DS (80), the prey is not the usual piece of meat but a live duck, whose image in the water haunts the dog as the duck flies away.en_US
