This is my second book in this series; I have Brooks's Readers: Third Year, published in the same year. Here one finds on 78-80 The Fox in the Well, a verse version of The Fox and the Wolf by J.T. Trowbridge. Joseph Jacobs' version of The Bat, the Birds, and the Beast is on 199 with a simple illustration. I think it somewhat unusual to find fables in school readers after the third grade. This book seems fragile after its first 106 years!
