Eleven fables show up in the course of the year. All (with two exceptions ) are uniformly one page long. FC (257) and TB (259) include a picture and so abbreviate the tale slightly. The shepherd-boy who has called Wolf! says, instead of laughing, that the wolf is gone now (230); there is less overt mockery and laughter in this version of this story. Also changed is the action of the mouse; instead of running over the lion's paw, he runs through his mouth (166). This big book is testimony to Aesop's popularity in broad segments of our culture.
