This book makes even more use of the fable than did Aldine First Language Book. Again there is a section on writing an original fable, this time on the pattern of Lessing's The Donkey and the Race Horse (51-9). Pages 70-75 then deal with a fable in rhyme (GA). The next chapter uses La Fontaine's The Two Merchants about the silver-eating rat (78-84). Chapter 18 returns to fables, using LM and DS and others as a basis for writing original fables (240-48). The first four stories for further study in Chapter 22 are fables (310-11). There is a curious insistence on good punctuation as one of the ways to make a really good fable (e.g. 244). Again no worthwhile illustrations. No index in this book.
