This book is related to another in the collection. They share the same title and publisher. Pages 2-32 here replicate the pages in that booklet, which stops at that point. This book continues on with a second half containing various stories, including four more fables on 46-47 and four last fables on 50-51. A common feature of the two books is the alternation of pages using colored illustrations with pages featuring black-and-white. This book has been heavily crayoned. Page numbers have been pencilled in, but they are all one page too short, since Page 1 was not counted. The exposed spine of this book shows two booklets stapled together. This book, much more worn, has No. 670 on its cover. I wrote the following about the shorter book: This is a large pamphlet with a wide selection of materials, some illustrated with colored images almost a full page in size, others with smaller colored images, and others with black-and-white drawings. There are several different repeated border designs along the way. Four fables are offered about a third of the way into the booklet: The Kid and The Wolf, The Dog and The Hare, The Mice in Council, and The Dog in the Manger. Do not ask why the last the here received no capital letter while the two earlier instances within a title did! The word the in titles in the latter two groups of fables do not have the problems noted in the first group.
