This is a 32-page pamphlet 5½ square. Its cover has a delightful full-color painting of a fox with pince-nez reading Aesop's Fables while other animals look on and listen. The style reminds me of Russian work being done then. Inside one finds a steady procession of two-page spreads for each fable, with text on the left and a full-page line drawing on the right. Exceptions are GA at the center of the book, which gets four pages, including a double-page illustration at the centerfold, and the last page, which offers four stages each for drawing four different animals. The best moral might be for CP: It really works. Try it yourself sometime! Here is another simple item that had eluded me for a long time!
