"Astă-noapte, am fost foarte atent la cîntecul cocoşului. Era atît de sincer, de plin de elan, încît nu pot concepe că nu se adresează nimănui, că o face doar pentru sine. In mod vădit, are ceva de comunicat, deşi registrul lui rămîne acelaşi şi nu pare să-şi schimbe formula. Şi ce dacă! Atîta convingere trebuie să corespundă unei realităţi şi să exprime un mesaj. Nu poţi să crezi că-i vorba de un simplu exerciţiu." - Emil Cioran

Beautiful illustrations. Also, the stories are not the way we Anglo-Saxon types have often heard them (if we've even heard them), they're definitely more Russian and it's a lot of fun.
