Previously published by Parragon in 1999 as A Treasury of Animal Tales. That title would be even more appropriate, since seven of the twelve stories here are standard Aesopic fables, but the other five are a mix of Pourquoi and other sorts of stories. FWT has the fox in question sporting his own tail as a part of his hat, and so the revelation of the story is not that he is missing his tail but that he had lost it in a trap. The Wolf and the Ass emphasizes the distinction between the smart ass, who here kicks the wolf, and the less smart donkey. Other fables include TH, DS, FC, TMCM, and FS. The Cat That Walked by Himself is a fascinating creation story that has the woman civilizing the man and various beasts, but only partly taming the cat. This book is about 6½ square with padded covers.
