Abstract
Here are twenty fables, each with two facing pages, in a 44-page booklet for children. There is a T of C at the front. The versions are careful, and the illustrations playful and charming. In LM, the lion is only tied to a tree; the mouse's task seems easier (9). SW is well told (14). The version of BC is clever: it does not specify the problem, but simply has an old and wise mouse ask Which of us is going to hang the bell around the cat's neck? (21). My favorites are the two illustrations for The Old Lady and the Doctor (24-25). Haywood's approach to the underlying character of the new wife is clever: paws, eyes, and ears are catlike (39).
