I am surprised that I had not found this book earlier. It came up on Amazon after I had found a new fable book to order and was looking for other books to boost the total high enough for free shipping. Aesop's Fables form the second section of this book (70-77). Four fables are told by Sheila Black and illustrated by Richard Bernal from their 1991 book. Those four are FC, GA, FG, and TH. The dust jacket's cover-painting includes a number of characters gathered around a winged horse. A tortoise just makes it into the corner of the picture. The book's cover has an embossed winged horse in gold. Other sections are Traditional Stories; Grimms' Fairy Tales; Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes; Children's Classics; A Child's Garden of Verses; American Tales (including Brer Rabbit on 214); The Night Before Christmas; and Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales.
