Abstract
This book helped me learn that "CreateSpace" is Amazon's publishing arm for independent publishers. This book's front cover features a bed with a book resting on the pillow -- and Aesopic figures moving toward it. There are eight fables on 108 pages, with simple black-and-white cartoon illustrations. The back cover claims that this book combines the fables with a "variety of virtuous verse schemes and poetic puns." Virtuous? In LM, the mouse first offers King Lion the option of changing his behavior before the mouse will free him from his net. "The Monkey and His Grip" is a version of "The Boy and the Filberts." I find the rhymes and puns forced, but children hearing these tales may judge differently. The last story, "The Caterpillars," pits "Try" against "Not" to dramatize two life styles.
