dc.description.abstractThere are three fables listed in this second of six volumes in the 1920 series of The Book House. This copy was printed in 1928, with earlier copyrights in 1920 and 1925. The first of the fables here is The Foolish, Timid, Little Hare, labelled as an East Indian fable (69-73). This is the story of the false report of an earthquake. It is illustrated here with several multi-colored illustrations by Bert Elliott. The Honest Woodman is adapted from La Fontaine (78-81). The story is particularly well told here -- How does that axe land in the middle of the lake, anyway? -- and includes the song that the woodman sings while he works. There is a lively version of Chanticleer, complete with two illustrations by Donn P. Crane (82-86). The Battle of the Firefly and the Apes, a Filipino tale (87-89), is not the Panchatantra story about a busybody. Here it is rather a story of a bully and the clever underdog's way of handling him. Facing ten apes, the firefly lands on the nose of the first, so that the second swings at him and, missing the firefly, hits his fellow ape. So it goes. The story says that all ten are fallen, but I think that can only be nine. The volume also contains The Battle of the Frogs and Mice (152) with Willy Pogany illustrations. There is besides a Jataka tale, The Sandy Road, told by Ellen Babbitt (200). This volume is exactly as large as the first, 448 pages.en_US
