Abstract
Six Aesopic fables and one that reminds me of something from the Panchatantra: the fox gets the chickens off the limb by getting them dizzy (108). One story, LM (207), is told in unusual fashion. The mouse thinks about building a nest in the cave that happens to be the lion's nose. When he feels the blast of warm air coming out, he rethinks, but still nibbles around the nostrils. When the lion wakes up, the mouse runs in fright right into his mouth. The lion decides on his own that, since a mouse is not much of a meal, he may as well let him live. Farmers then catch the lion for eating their sheep. Neither victim has a chance to say thank you. Other fables: FS (130), The Cat on the Peg (212), TMCM (214), FM (217), and BC (220). No fable illustrations.
