Again I find an American Book Company reader in unusually good condition and with unusually good color printing. There are two fables here: The Wolf and the Kid (74-5) and LM (82-3). The format is unusual. A first page offers an introduction, a picture (colored on 82), a dialogue, and some individual vocabulary. The second page gives a text of the fable. LM breaks off at the end of the first episode to resume on 88-89. This version has the unusual feature of having the mouse see the black man setting the net. After the mouse comes to the roaring lion, the story breaks off with these questions: How did the mouse help the lion? Did the lion try to bite the mouse? Who can roar like a lion?
