A comical collection of dark fables. Each story focuses on humanized animals and offers social commentary on society while teetering on the thin line of being disturbing (while some tales do indeed cross the line, i.e. The Crow and the Lamb), and each tale concludes with a twisted justification of morality. I must admit, that after a few stories in I was about to call it quits and stop reading, not because of any disturbing scenes, but simply because I did not find it entertaining, but then I came to The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck, which had me literally laughing out loud throughout half of the story, so I stuck with the book. I am glad I read it, moments were funny, but this is not something I would recommend to most people.
