dc.description.abstractA fine book. I am surprised that I have never seen it before. Seventy-eight fables, enhanced by twenty-four full-color and many black-and-white illustrations, somewhat after the fashion of Fritz Kredel. The best of the colored illustrations are of FS (19), the bear and the bees (41), LM (45), and the monkey and and the camel (49). Several times (5 and 10, 19 and 20) one image is developed or taken from another. Do not miss the end-papers, which offer a colorful melange of fable characters excerpted from the colored illustrations. Doctor Toad (26) is especially well told. The first story's illustration (rooftop) does not match its version (tree, 5). The frog forgot that the mouse could not swim and so drowned him by mistake (15). The donkey who tries to live on dew in order to sing like a grasshopper almost dies (24). The AI at the end of the book mistakenly gives 65 instead of 45 for LM. This copy is not in very good condition.en_US
