dc.description.abstractThis book seems an expansion of Treasured Tales of Childhood: Fables & Nursery Rhymes, published by Southwestern in 1974 and again around 1985. There Aesop's Fables formed the seventh of eight sections reproducing -- with some omissions -- Anne Sellers Leaf's Aesop's Fables from Rand McNally in 1952. The omissions from her earlier work included The Cat, the Cock, and the Young Mouse, GGE, and WS. By contrast with her original work, the larger page format there allowed illustrations and stories to be spread out further. The editor cleverly cut the boy going to shout Wolf! in half; the reader has to turn the page to see the other half. Now Aesop's Fables forms the seventh of fifteen numbered sections in this book. The section comprises 100-117. The same selection is made from Leaf's original work, and the same cut is made in the illustration of the boy going to shout Wolf! (111-112). The book's title has changed slightly.en_US
