About the Book

Finally available in paperback--the original collection of La Fontaine fables by the award-winning translator Norman Shapiro, working his alchemy by transforming the accompanying original French verses into equally valuable and brilliant English gold. These wonderfully wrought moral tales charm children with bright and basic truths as they delight adults with reflectively subtle, sophisticated facets of wit and wisdom.
