Here is a large, colorful collection of eighty-two stories for children, including legends, fairy tales, and fables. The fables include One Good Turn Deserves Another (34, about the farmer's cap and the eagle), FC (48), The Foolish Wolf (54, new to me), GA (63), WC (88), TH (110), and GGE (110). The foolish wolf makes three mistakes: instead of eating a ram, he lets the ram run into his mouth; instead of eating a donkey as he is, he lets him lie down and is promptly kicked; thirsty, he drinks half a barrel without knowing that it is brandy. The art, with at least one illustration per story, seems to me to be harmless.
