I have this book in its 1948 printing by Rinehart and Company of New York and Toronto. Here is the fourteenth printing twelve years later from Holt, Rinehart and Winston of New York. The front and back covers have changed accordingly. As I wrote there, ten fables get handled in this collection, all receiving non-traditional endings. The approach is the same as in Who Ben Kaputen Der Robin (1960). The best have the fox eating the stork, the crow breaking the pitcher, and the ox driving the dog from the manger with his snoring. A cute and enjoyable sidetrack from the main line of Aesop. The best illustrations are for FS and CP.
