This book may mix stories from Babbitt's 1912 and 1922 editions, titled respectively Jataka Tales and More Jataka Tales. Both were published by The Century Company and illustrated by Ellsworth Young. Simpler drawings here have been substituted for Young's work. There are twenty-one stories here. How the Turtle Saved His Own Life (23) is still wonderfully pleasing The fishes in The Three Fishes (130) are again named as in the standard Kalila and Dimna story, but the story now has to do with one fish who saves two others from a net. The covers present a human child walking in front of a baboon.
