The Fables of Pilpay, by Anonymous (c200 BC - 300 AD), translated by Abdullah Ibn al-Muqaffa ( c 756) and Joseph Harris (c 1690)
These moralistic stories within stories date back to the Sanskrit text Panchatantra (200 BC – 300 AD). They were first translated into Arabic by a Persian named Ruzbeh who named it Book of Kalilah and Dimna and then by Abdullah Ibn al-Muqaffa and later Joseph Harris in 1679 and then remodeled in 1818. Max Mueller noted that La Fontaine was indebted to the work and other scholars have noted that Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont and John Fletcher were both familiar with the fables. The Fables of Pilpay are a series of inter-woven fables, many of which deploy metaphors of anthropomorphized animals with human virtues and vices. (Summary by The introduction and Wikipedia)

Looking online for pronunciation of Pilpay, I've found "Bidpai" is considered the closest to the ancient language. Is that your preference?
Thanks for your counsel.

The book is also known as The Fables of Bidpai (or Pilpai in various European languages, Vidyapati in Sanskrit) - from Wikipedia -

This person discussed calls it the fables of Bidpai. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acxWfG-6yTE

Lets prounoune The Fables of Pilpay as The Fables of Bidpa

- sound okay to you?
