Abstract
This is an impressive classroom text, inviting good reflective work with an array of Aesopic fables and other works derived from them. The accompanying highly stylized colored cartoons are engaging. Early fables like Aesop's The Fox in the Well have pupils applying some twenty-two adjectives to either the fox or the goat. For TH, the pupil needs to describe either character. Next we read four fox fables from Aesop and La Fontaine and are asked to track the characteristics of the fox. Soon we are choosing our own set of five suitable fable animals and assigning three adjectives to each. Then we follow a Wilhelm Busch fable that has the fox dividing up spoil between King Lion and a wolf. This fable's illustration is the pamphlet's cover picture. Perhaps one of the best of Bettzieche's cartoons is the arrogant sack of the next fable, which is promptly put in its place by the grains which it carries. The circle widens to include a Friedrich Wolf fable about three animals that escape a pit only to fall into arguing with each other and being caught again. By mid-book pupils work with a definition of fable and some history of Aesop. There is even a separate answer-book for teachers. I find this an insightful introduction to fable. I can only wish it were in English!
