dc.description.abstractHere is a cuddly set of three animal stories. Commère means something like gossip, and compère something like accomplice. In the first, the Bobby dog family finds that a mother cat and three kittens have taken over their doghouse (3). The parent dogs give in to their pups' pleading not to disturb the cats. By the next day, they are even protecting the kittens. The two families learn to live together happily, and mother cat even names her kittens after the three pups. In the second, Ratapon the cat is left behind by careless masters off on vacation (13). On the way to starvation, he catches Tigris the rat and asks his help. The two form a friendship, and Tigris gnaws Ratapon a hole that can get him to food. The third story is an expansion-cum-application of BF: Le petit Canard qui voulait se faire Paon (25). The duck Coin-Coin (equivalent, I believe, to our Quack! Quack!) wants to compete with the peacock named Beauté. The duck picks up discarded peacock feathers and gets help from a monkey in creating a peacock-like tail for himself. Alas, he is so happy with the resulting acclaim that he jumps for joy into the water. Of course the feathers fall out one by one, till he is left with just one feather sticking out of his tail. His mother, called upon to remove that last feather, teaches him that life's challenge is to be well what you are rather than to be something else. There are simple two-colored designs all along the way of the 32 pages here. The press apparently changed its location, as the new location is pasted over the old one on the title-page.en_US
