A pleasing set of fifty-two brief stories from several genres with simple illustrations. The four Aesopic fables are The Fox and the Goat (the wolf story about finding a remedy for the king, 31), The Lapdog and the Bull (for Aesop's donkey, 97), The Goat and the Baboon (for Aesop's fox in the well, 117), and The Cock-Pheasant and the Cat (the rooster and the fox, 169). The last two of these have illustrations, and in the last there is a real dog! Otherwise the funniest of the stories begin on 35 and 41.
