Eighty-four fables with pleasant black-and-white cartoons. Aesop, with a crutch, appears frequently in five or six repeated poses after fables. There are several good, pithy morals here, e.g. for The Angler and the Little Fish: A man in a tight corner makes many promises (49) and for The Fox and the Hedgehog: A thief in real need steals more than one who has plenty (95). There is a colored frontispiece and two other pages colored on both sides (96 and 128). The colored images are lively, perhaps romantic or even sentimental, e.g. The Trees and the Axe (96). There is also one page of better paper stock printed on both sides in black-and-white (32). The best of the black-and-white images may be that for The Mule (46), which shows the two faces of the truth. This may have been the book that did for Australians what Fritz Kredel did for a generation of American kids. Notice that I have exactly the same book with all the same information and plates but listed on its title-page as A Sun Classic.
