The back cover of this children's booklet advertises sixteen books in a series whose title is too long to fit into my database categories: Famous Tales of Andersen, Grimm, etc.: Children's Fairy Tales. This is T16 in that series. A dramatic colored presentation of WC is at the center of the cover, surrounded by various fairyland figures and scenes. The booklet's 48 pages present over fifty fables, several with a simple design. Thus there is a picture of a standing stag on 13; unfortunately, the fable there is about the sick stag lying on the ground! An Arab and camel on 29 face the story about them on 28. Flies gather around the honey pot on 45. Most of the fables feature explicit separate morals after the narrative. The front cover has separated for about an inch at both top and bottom. Otherwise good condition.
