There are twelve stories here in a pamphlet in good condition. Four are listed as from Aesop: The Wise Little Goat (7), A Silly Trick (26), The Race (47), and The Lion and the Fox (54). We might know the first three better, respectively, as The Wolf and the Goat, BW, and TH. A Friend in Need (31) is Gay's The Hare and Her Many Friends retold. Red Comb and the Fox (71) is the Chanticleer story adapted from Chaucer. The Dog and the Wolf (21) is listed as a proverb illustrated; it is Perry 134. The little dog promises to be fatter in a week. But I do not know what proverb is illustrated here! Each story is illustrated with one or two simple two-color or three-color illustrations, with just a few monochrome illustrations added. The tellings are deliberately simple and careful about their incremental vocabulary.
