dc.description.abstract"Amazon's summary is a good start: "Les philo-fables, ce sont des fables simples et riches de sens tirées de la philosophie occidentale, de la mythologie et des sagesses d'Orient. 60 fables accompagnées de questions, de repères et de mots-clés... Voilà de quoi aider les enfants, dès 9 ans, à franchir la porte de l'atelier du philosophe. A lire pour le plaisir de penser plus grand et plus loin!" The book is wonderfully colorful and engaging. Some of the stories, like the first, are more exactly fables and are taken from fables. Two hedgehogs are cold and lie together but then find that they are hurting each other. They get away from each other, but then grow cold. It takes them some time to find the proper distance. Another such fable is "The Blind and the Lame" from Florian (122). Most of these thought-provoking stories come from other than the fable tradition. That fact fits my thinking because these sources probably fit best what I have called "parables," stories that question values rather than stories that invite perception. There is, for example, the great story of the two monks who encounter a pretty young woman who wants to cross the river (56-57). One picks her up and carries her across. The other is scandalized that a monk would touch a woman. When they arrive back at the monastery, the outraged monk accuses the other, who answers "I put her down two hours ago. You still have her on your back!" Each story has some catch-words above it, as here "Colère, Jalousie, Tentation, Désir." And each has a reflection titled "Dans l'atelier du philosophe." The colorful, simple art is just right for this book."en_US
