This is a lovely book in excellent condition (except for a tear on 81 and discoloration on the red cover). It is in an unusual format for Rand McNally and Milo Winter: 8 x 9¼. Besides very simple folk tales and myths, there are fourteen fables. I believe all of the illustrations come from Winter. They are in a variety of formats, including full-page colored illustrations and partial-page colored and black-and-white illustrations. They and their texts are all familiar from The Aesop for Children. The stories included here are MM, BW, DM, DS, FC, TH, The Swallow and the Crow, CP, The Sheep and the Pig, GA, TMCM, LM, SW, and BC. Only MM and the two with unabbreviated titles above are not illustrated here. The partial-page colored illustrations are particularly sharp. This is a very nice find at a bookstore of whose existence I had not been aware.
