This reader features two items that belong in the fable world: Androclus and the Lion (46), attributed to Roman Tradition, and Reynard the Fox (241), described as a German folk tale. There is one black-and-white illustration for the former. There are several black-and-white illustrations for the latter, including a good one of Bruin about to get stuck in the tree trunk when Reynard will knock out the wedges (255). This version of the Reynard story includes the Chanticleer tale and even the name Chanticleer. The thirty-page story has a clever ending. Reynard has been condemned. Do you think Reynard was hanged? Oh no! he was far too cunning for that. Just how he made the king think that he was his best friend and how Reynard brought his enemies into disgrace is another long story (272).
