Earnest and industrious Beavers, funloving but discontented Frogs, a Lobster named Lugubrious J. Standfast and a wonderful Frog leader are some of the characters in this mythical tale about a Swamp named Canada.
This delightfully illustrated and satirically sharp review of Canadian history in the late 1960s and early 1970s features some familiar faces--Lester B. Pearson, Richard Nixon, Rene Levesque, the immaculate chief-frog (chief beaver?) Pierre Trudeau--evolved slightly to survive in Swamp conditions.
Frog Fables & Beaver Tales is a clever, hilarious souvenir of a particularly vibrant period in Canadian politics.
