dc.description.abstractHow have I missed this book until now? It seems a standard children's reading book, about 6½ x 8. The original cost in 1958 was $.25. Notice which fables are chosen; they seem a standard set for the mid-1900's: FC, MM, GA, TH, CP, AD, FS, The Eagle and the Fox, OF, LM, and DS. Here the moral for MM is Do not count your chickens before they hatch and for CP Necessity is the mother of invention. The FS moral is new to me and very good: Many go out for wool and come home shorn. In OF, the ox does not kill any small frogs, and the father-frog knows the size of an ox.en_US
