A collection of fables in short poems for small children was written by a Croatian author Gustav Krklec (1899-1977) and translated to Slovenian by an author and screen writer Matej Bor (1913-1993). This is a first separately published collection of Krklec’s fables, which were previously only published separately in magazines and newspapers.
The vibrant mid-century illustrations in blue and black were made by a Croatian artist Vesna Borčić (born 1920), who graduated from the Zagreb Art Academy and specialized in illustration.
The book comes from a de-accessed archive of a publishing house and is seemingly unread.
