This is a sturdy, well executed print to order book. It includes sections on Frog Kings, Princes and Bridegrooms; Frog Brides; Frog Wooing and Courting; More Frog Tales; Fables; and a one-member section of Additional Materials, including only The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County. The fable section includes items #66 through 93 and covers 232-270. The fables attributed to Aesop are presented in the versions of Thomas James and Joseph Jacobs. The versions of both are presented for The Hares and the Frogs (233); OF (239); and FK (241). The story about three fish from the Panchatantra here includes a frog named Single Wit. His one reaction outdoes the reactions of the supposedly smart fishes, named Hundred Wits and Thousand Wits. Particularly well told is The Frog, the Craw-fish, and the Serpent (257). Watch out! That story takes a second turn.
