MetadataShow full item record
There are three fables here in an unpaginated collection of various children's materials. After a colored frontispiece of three children, one riding a dog, there are black-and-white illustrations. The telling by Ida Fay is unusual in that a class of students discusses the picture of the bear and two men before little Mary who knows the Aesopic story tells it. Emily Carter does a similar retelling of SW, in which two boys on the way to school meet a man beating a horse--until a young man shows him how to treat the horse kindly. There is a new ending to The Donkey, the Fox and the Lion. The donkey in the pit brays so loud that hunters come, save him, and kill both the lion and the fox! The back cover depicts a strange scene of a native American apparently rising out of water to gaze at bathing women! This canvas-bound book is in poor condition.
