The cover claims Stories to read or tell for just £1. I presume that this British edition is not available in the USA. Twenty-four fables on 64 pages. All the doube-pages have the same banners across the top and bottom. Each fable concludes with a small recurring illustration of either fox, lion, or mouse pronouncing a bubbled moral. In fact, those are the only illustrations. The goat caught by the wolf invites him to play the flute on the pretext that more goats would willingly follow him (25). Notice the British idiom in The Fox and the Corn (38); I think this story is clearly about wheat.
