This is a gorgeous retelling of an Aesop fable. von Buhler and her father built a small set in which to place her characters, which are essentially paper dolls. Then all the art was photographed. You really have to see this book, it’s so distinctive, and the cats are wonderful parodies of spoiled rich children.
