Abstract
Stage 1 of New Method Supplementary Readers, with a vocabulary of 500 words. Five fables are followed by Stories of Mr Rabbit and Mr Fox and then by Fairy Tales. The first fable, The old cat, recasts the traditional story of an old dog and a hunter. Here an old woman is involved. TMCM is then followed by The man and the apples, in which a man on his way to a rich man's house for dinner throws away a box of good apples he finds because he expects a good meal. Alas, he encounters a flooding river and cannot get to the expected big dinner. He returns to take his apples out of the dust and to eat them. In TB the second man is fat and so cannot get up the tree. BC finishes the set. What a nice surprise!
