Fábulas - Jean de La Fontaine


This is one of my most precious memories of my childhood. Before going to school, sometimes after, I used to go to a nearby kiosk and buy some chocolates. But these chocolates weren't ordinary. They came wrapped with tiny books inside. With the fables of Jean de La Fontaine. That's one of my earliest independent contacts with literature that I can remember, so I really treasure those fables. I didn't know they were such classics of the 17th century. I found them entertaining so I started collecting them (since I've never liked chocolate that much, I used to give it to my friends :P ), and eventually, they led me to Aesop. Thanks to my grandma, actually, my GR back then.  
The Lion and the Mouse, The Ant and the Grasshopper, The Cat and the Mice, The Mice in Council, The Fox and the Grapes, and The Fox and the Stork, all favorites of mine. Damn, now I'm nostalgic. 
Ok. I hope you enjoy my "it has nothing to do with the book" review. I gave it 4 stars, at first, but now I'm a mix of books, images and nostalgia so, a big 5 it is.
