Child Classics: The Third Reader
Six fables. The Crab and His Mother (14) is uneventful, with a simple black-and-white engraving. MM (64) has a nice impressionistic black-and-white illustration. MSA (90) is done as a play without illustration. It has thee in the nominative several times. The donkey falls from the bridge as they try to turn him over. GA (95) is done in a standard verse presentation without illustration, as is Emerson's Fable (132). Tolstoy's The Two Horses (229) is brief and pointed: work and you will eat.
