This reading textbook from the 80's shows the place fables have had in education recently. Two fables appear. TT (156), adapted by Arthur Yorinks and illustrated by Ronald LeHew, uses simple cartoon figures and presents the turtle's talkativeness as a conscious stance. Flying was so much fun. The turtle had to say something. So he began to talk. He fell into water, said that he thought he talked too much, and did not go anywhere after that. If I was a child, I think I would not be eager to read many more stupid and childish stories of this sort. In WS (178), adapted by Regina Neuman and illustrated by John Wallner, the wind, an arrogant bully, picks out a little girl and asks if the sun can make her take off her green coat. The wind of course claims to be able to do it.
