dc.description.abstractHere are thirty two-page fables, each presenting a few paragraphs of prose on the left-hand page and a full-page colored illustration on the right-hand page. The texts are original and creative. All have to deal with native Australian fauna. The morals are generally well related to the narrative. The illustrations are lively and colorful. They remind me of WPA art at its best. Among the best examples is The Spider at the Centre of the Universe (6): of course a spider thinks that the center of his web is the center of the universe! Two typically strong illustrations accompany The Very Unhappy Kookaburra (10) and The Corroboree Frog That Joined The Dance (32). One of my favorites is The Ducklings, The Dog And The Portly Man (52). A delightful book!en_US
