Three fables, originally from Ancient Greece. WSC, BW, and The Wolf and the Goat. Good tellings by Pie Corbett. One of the best illustrations shows the wolf dreaming of eating: he sits at a table with a nice bib, holding a knife and fork! In this version, the shepherd chooses this sheep because it is the thinnest. And he does not discover its true character until the wife is preparing to roast it! In BW, the shepherd boy plays his trick again and again. A pack of wolves arrives on the scene. The wolves take all the sheep. The third story is usually told, I believe, with a fox tricking the goat into the well as a ladder to let him climb out. All three of the artists with their divergent styles do a creditable job with their tales. Well done!
