Formerly owned by the San Bernadino Free Library. Of sixteen stories, several appear frequently in fable collections. In The Crab, the Crocodile and the Jackal (27), the jackal outwits the other two and so stays alive. TT (45) features a cross tortoise. The Mouse's Bride (103) has the first male mouse I have seen in this story. Also different is the fact that the mouse-son rejects each of the brides he is offered. Several stories are new to me and good: A School for Crocodiles (110), The Judgment of the Shepherd (117), and The Mouse and the Wizard (123).
