"As I fully expected, this paperback book has nothing to do with Aesopic fables. It contains standard Casper cartoon stories. I read the first, "Every Litter Bit Helps." It is rather a full story, lasting 42 pages. In typical cartoon style, it brings together contemporary concerns like littering; traditional views of fascinating things like witches and ghosts; evil characters and good characters -- Casper and his friend, Wendy, the good little witch; and happy endings. Keeping it in the collection may help some future researcher to know what kind of book it is."
