lovely little book with great illustrations
What a finding. I have never seen this book before. And it ought to be one of the biggest bestsellers. What a story. Lovely graphics.
Lovely. And what a lovely tune.
Enchanting. The resurrection of the fable and with two types of illustrations: fun. Cartoons on one side and pencil drawings on the other.
