"Some folks say Reynard the Fox is a rascal. They will tell you he is sly, and up to all sorts of tricks.
He prowls around at night, smelling the air with his long nose, and listening with his long ears; and when he has done prowling, you may be pretty sure he is not as hungry as when he set out."So begins "How Reynard the Fox Fooled the Raven," the first of these eighteen enchanting stories.
The adventures of Reynard, the great folkloric trickster, along with those of other animals are charmingly adapted by William Trowbridge Larned from La Fontaine's classic fables.
Striking color illustrations by artist John Rae enhance "The Tortoise and the Hare," "Jocko the Monkey and Mouser the Cat," "The City Mouse and the Country Mouse," "The Grasshopper Goes to the Ant," and other timeless tales.
