dc.description.abstractFirst printed in 1942. This book of radio transcripts has three major sections: "Nine Dialogue Stories"; "Twelve Stories to Tell or to Read"; and "Nine Fables of Aesop as Dialogue Stories." Third third set runs from 129 through the book's end on 176. Two of the middle section's stories are regularly recounted as fables: "The Four Friends and the Hunter" (103) and "The Goatherd and the Goats" (114). The former is true to the "Kalilah and Dimnah" story as I know it; the only change seems to be that the gazelle is here a goat. It is well told. The latter is also familiar. The goatherd finds wild goats and treats them better than his own by giving them food in their cave, while his own hunger outside the cave. When he returns in the morning, the wild goats have beaten down the branches holding them in the cave, and his own goats have died of hunger. The goats do a bit of talking in this piece. OF is the first of the fables. Willywog and Pollywog get away from mother for the first time. Ox steps on one but is gracious enough to lift his leg when Willywog asks,and Pollywog is still alive. Mother cannot believe that anything is larger than she is. She bursts. Aesop acts as narrator, interspersed with the animal voices. In TH, the hare stops for a snack at Duck's roadside stand. Tortoise has a repeated rhyme: "Be sure to keep an even pace! Slow and steady wins the race." There are helpful black-and-white cartoons along the way. Even the dust-jacket is well preserved.en_US
