A trendy textbook that illustrates the small but steady place fable has in contemporary literary education. It offers four fables (170-75): FC (Anne Terry White), The Weaver and the Worm (Thurber), The Rich Dog and the Poor Dog, and The Fox Who Gave Advice. The latter two are incomplete: students supply the ending and the moral. The grammar and analysis work concentrates on quotation marks, dramatization, and cause-and-effect discrimination.
