KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Scarry has shortened thirty-one of the fables and surrounded them with his own gay interpretations. As artist he has used his unusual gift for recreating animals to great advantage. Many of the double-spreads are black and white; some are in bright colors--all are clearly drawn in detail and of good size. Included in the fine selection -- some familiar, some not-- are ""The Fox and the Crow"", ""The Mouse and the Elephant"", and ""The Miller, His Son and the Donkey"": A bright bold show (which is a welcome sight with so many pastel creations appearing recently) from the well-established author/illustrator of the Tinker and Tanker books.
