dc.description.abstractI think the combination of a book and a game is a first in this collection. The game, with a punch-out spinning arrow and markers, actually has nothing to do with Aesop or fables. The most amazing thing about this simple game is that it is in such good condition fifty years later; perhaps the condition testifies to the game's inherent lack of interest! The cover page of the book proclaims proudly All the pictures and verses in this book are suitable for framing to be hung in school room, library or personal den. Eleven fables on two pages each, with a page of bad verse and a facing page of illustration. Alternating two-tone (brown-and-tan) and multi-colored presentations. LM (12) has a mouse that runs across the lion's nose in the lion's lair! The donkey and lapdog belong to a peddler (10). The Stag and the Lion (24) is new to me: the hunted stag goes into the lion's cave, in the version's own cliche, out of the frying pan into the fire.en_US
