Eighteen fables on 75-90 in Jacobs' version, not acknowledged. Then four fables from Thurber on 91-8. I find Thurber a surprising match for Aesop for these young readers. Using Jacobs as source means that a fable like The Hare with Many Friends (from Gay) represents Aesop. There are discussion questions on this fable and Thurber's The Owl Who Was Not God on 186-9. Included is the companion volume: Series Four, Volume Two.
