This book containes about twenty-five or thirty well told fables. The moral of FS is A joke is not as amusing when you are its victim. Pages 97-8 give a fine little essay on fables. These excerpts reflect some of its wisdom: More a case of intelligent gossip over a fence than a sermon, more to illuminate than to instruct, like cartoons today, do not lengthen fables when you tell them. There are a few cheaply produced black-and-white illustrations for Aesop. I would think of giving this book as a gift.
