dc.description.abstract"For Pupil's Use" is printed clearly on the cover of this paperback reader. There are two fables in this reader. "The Two Frogs" (15) is the story of the two frogs that meet halfway between Osaka and Kyoto but look backwards as they meet and see only the town they come from. In either case, the frog believes that he is seeing his destination and dismisses it as just like his own town. I have never quite been convinced by this fable. The author here labors to help us believe that frogs end up seeing backward. Not the frogs I have known! MSA on 51 is labeled an Aesop's fable. The story takes a new turn right at the start: "The father was lame, and the son limped because of a sore foot." A repeated line here is "Well, I never saw such a sight before!" The father gets the last lines here: "We tried to please everybody, and we have pleased no one. Next time we shall please ourselves!" The sepia illustrations are adequate to the stories. This copy was used in the town of Buxton. I can find a Buxton in Maine. Are there Buxtons in other states? I could not find a connection of Noble and Noble with the firm that we know as Barnes and Noble.en_US
