Here is a second copy of this booklet. This is a pleasant 20-page pamphlet 7½ x 8¼ containing three fables and a short life of Aesop including GGE and FK. The title-story puts the fox into a hollow tree trunk. There is a graphic illustration of the greedy fox at work eating on 5. The next two pages give good front and back looks at his plight as he is stuck half-way in the entrance. FG is offered in good rhyming verse. Aesop is pictured as black. CP is unusually carefully told, in that it describes the pot as nearly full of water (18). Other versions may ask too much of their rocks in raising an inch of water to the top of a pot! I wonder if this booklet does not belong to some kind of a (British?) school reading set. It includes this information on the back cover: ©Copyright controller HMSO 1993, KS1 Reading Test, J0661.
