Abstract
Compare this book with the larger 1958 book with the same title by the same author and illustrator. It must be unusual in the history of publishing to have the same two combine on so different a work! Three of the ten fables here repeat the versions from there but have new illustrations. The other seven are new stories, two of which are new to me: The Hare's Courage (19) and The Bull and the Fox (21). The endpapers show one illustration from each fable on balloons played with by mice. The best of the illustrations may be that of the blown-out frog (18). The illustrations here are not quite as vivacious as those there, perhaps because of the poorer quality of paper here. Page 25 is slightly torn.
