I thought I had this book. I still think so after searching everywhere! Lively and realistic art. The best of the illustrations are for WC (22-3) and MM (34-5). There is a long version of The Young Man and the Cat (80). New to me: The Parrot and the Cat (18). Notice the statue of Mary and Jesus on the donkey's back on 17! Around 98-110 one of the sections of the book gets misfolded at the center. Compare this edition--published in the U.S. and printed in Italy--with the original copyrighted by Eurobook in 1975 and printed in the U.S. This has thirty-one more tales, dull-finished pages, and different cover material. The pages of the two books up to 92 match up frequently but not always.
