Abstract
This third volume, apparently in a series of three, adds a sentence at mid page indicating the authors of the fables here: Aesop, Phaedrus, La Fontaine, Samaniego, and Iriarte. The book continues the tradition of the first two volumes by supplying lively illustrations in large format. As in Volume 2, there are fourteen stories. The biggest surprise comes in FK, where the frogs choose a white duck as their first king. The illustration shows the frogs, after some time, using the duck as a diving board, doing gymnastics on him, and spitting water at him. As they express their wish for a better king, a huge frog appears and offers himself. But as soon as he becomes king, he expects all sorts of service. The frogs return to the duck to ask for help in getting rid of this new king, but he tells them that those who do not want a good king will get a bad one. New to me are La Discordia de los Relojes and La Dueña y el Sirviente.
