dc.description.abstractThis book presents a strong and even provocative version of this great fable. The back cover speaks rightly of Morel's gravures explosives. The very size of the book helps with its overlarge and unusual format: 9? x 13. Bombed cities and gas masks -- even on birds -- help to set the scene. The ass's first appearance is revealing: he sits awkwardly in a light colored suit without a tie among other animals in dark business suits and ties. In the midst of the lion's confession, his face appears in a double-page spread screaming and bloody. Murderous animals appear in monk's robes as they confess their peccadilloes. Fox, alligator, and clerical wolf are all well rendered, suitably hypocritical -- and then suitably outraged at the ass's terrible crime. Strong stuff, well done!en_US
