Here is the first of three extra copies of this set that includes a pop-up book and a cassette. An ingenious set. The fun starts with the excellent match of the book's cover with the surrounding package's picture. It continues with the insertion of a tape into the back of the book. The tape's renditions are much more expansive than those in this book. (In fact, they are adaptations--for all but SW--of versions from Zorn's Aesop's Fables from Running Press in 1990.) The six pop-outs are excellent. BW is expanded and now includes some hyperbole; the wolf now eats the boy in one gulp! The tortoise has become female, and TMCM's dog has become a cat. See the comments on the 1994 tape.
