This hefty paperback -- about 8 x 9 and 416 pages long -- is divided by good categories: Myths and Fables; Fairy Tales; Folk Tales; Friends and Helpers; Hawk and Chicken Tales; Rabbit Stories; Liar, Fool, and Tall Tales; Biography; History; Slavery; Growing Up; and Songs and Poetry. The first section is predictably broad. Among the good fables I find here are Anansi Gets What He Deserves (20); Why the Chameleon Shakes His Head (22-23); Nine Wild Dogs and One Lion (a version of LS); and A Quarrel Between Friends (54-55). There is a whole lot of material beyond these fables!
