My sense has been that those who have designed grade school readers have seen the third grade as the best for reading fables. This reader fits that perception. Included are: GGE (13); The Cats and the Monkey (21, illustrated); FC (31); FS (34, with two nice silhouettes); WL (74); DM (93, illustrated); DS (105); TH (127); FG (127); DLS (159, illustrated); WSC (160); and The Boy That Stole Apples (206). The lamb in WL answers, when accused of eating the wolf's grass, that she did not think that the wolf ate grass. The fox recognizes the donkey by both his long ears and his noisy bray. The shepherd who catches the wolf in sheep's clothing hangs him and has to explain to travelers that he does not hang his own sheep. T of C at the beginning. Fair condition. Apparently complete.
