Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of the world's most beloved fables

Jean de la Fontaine popularized some of our most loved proverbial tales, including "The Hare and the Tortoise" and "The Hen Who Laid Golden Eggs," transforming the world's great fables into charming works of astonishing originality, wit, and verve. James Michie's earthy translations capture the friendly brio, nimble comedy, and jaunty wisdom of the original.

* Black-and-white line drawings by J. J. Grandville introduce each fable
