Abstract
Red cloth boards. Nineteen fables on 48 pages. Witty rhyming-couplet versions for children. In The Lioness Mrs. Rabbit claims at least twenty-two children. (You see, though I have a far greater amount,/Twenty-two is as high as I know how to count) (8). The ant pitied the grasshopper But he died before she'd time to bid him stay (11). Country mouse Timmy had scarcely hung up his hat in town when he scented a cat and left (15). Guthrie goes a step further than the text in WS when the traveller is pictured in a body of water (19). A mischievous breeze blows out the boastful candle on purpose (24). This text pits a pine against the reed (25). Among the best of Guthrie's black-and-white illustrations are those of the sleeping hare (28) and the crane's legs at the fox's door (32). Beyer has the father frog in OF say I'll equal that monster or bust and adds, with italics, And he did! (36).
