dc.description.abstract"I had previously found a first printing of the 2004 edition of this work, which has a copyright year of 2004 but claims to be an edition published in 2007. It seems to be a sixth printing. I find it hard to put all that information together. As I wrote then, this stocky (6½" x 7¼"), heavy book has 512 pages of classic stories. The lively colored illustrations begin with the cover's picture from "The Old Woman and Her Pig": an older woman talks with a mouse while a horse, a pig, and a dog look on. As the beginning T of C makes clear, a section titled "Animals Big and Small" (140-200) presents several fables: LM, AL, DS, "The Wonderful Tar Baby," and TH. As is true throughout the book, the small illustrations for the fables are well executed and often show both charm and creativity. There are seldom two pages of solid print in a row. The lion facing the mouse on 141 has his tongue coming out the side of his mouth. If one had to choose one good story book for reading regularly to a child, this book would certainly be a candidate. The extensive list of artists contributing to this book faces the title-page. The pliable covers and spine show some warping and crinkling."en_US
