(Xlibris Corporation, 2003)
This large-format (8½ x 11) paperback book presents fourteen creatures through rhyming couplets and line-drawings. The rhymes sometimes groan, but the word-plays can be fun. Here is a good example from The Gnu and the ...
The Great Fairy Tales Treasure Chest, Book 5
This fifth volume of the set of five contains no fables. It includes The Three Little Pigs and Snow White. I catalogue it here for the sake of completeness, since I have the whole set of five.

Folk Tales Children Love
(The Platt & Munk co. inc., 1934)
