I have a book of the same title from the same publisher, but it is the Cathedral Edition and is one year earlier. What a difference those two factors make! I had written of that book A great bit of Catholic memorabilia! The book features great pictures of little kids dressed up as nuns, priests, and crusaders. Three fables: The Hare and the Hedgehog, TT, and TMCM. Charming illustrations. The end of an old style. Here in this book we find a newer and more secular style. Different are first of all the pictures: the cover and title-page pictures and also the pictures before each section. There is no Monsignor listed among the authors. Many of the works have changed in the first two sections, Neighborhood Friends and Animal Friends. BW is no longer included in the latter. The final section, Storybook Friends, substitutes The Three Little Pigs for Brother Alonzo but is otherwise identical. It thus includes The Hare and the Hedgehog, TT, and TMCM. I had not noticed in the earlier Catholic edition that a fourth fable also occurs here: A Foolish Rabbit. This book is in poor condition.
