Fables and Fairy Tales
Pleasing illustrations and witty fables strong on the wisdom of peasants. Four fables: The Peasant and the Cucumbers (like MM, 19), The Wolf and the Old Woman (27), The Gnat and the Lion (39), and The Hedgehog and the Hare (46). The milkmaid becomes a peasant, and a shake of the head becomes an ironic cry at a fictive watchman.
