The Right Play for You
(Abingdon Press, 1960)
A simple pedagogical work for those who work with young people. How do you select, adapt, and alter a play? Aesop gives two of the first subjects dealt with: FG (23-24) as a subject involving good pantomime possibilities ...
Beasts: An Alphabet of Fine Prints
(Little Brown,, 1968)
I am probably cheating by including this lovely sideways book in this collection. The letter R is given here to rabbits who are roasting a hunter and his dog in an engraving by Virgil Solis. I have some recollection, ...
Strenuous Animals: Veracious Tales
(Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1904)
Eight folksy tales with a bit of slang reminiscent of George Ade. The tales generally go to show that animals--or at least the local ones--know what they are doing. Usually some local has a scheme using an animal in some ...
A Fable for Critics
(The Riverside Press: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1848)
This strange booklet begins with a rubricated title page offering a wonderfully crazy perspective on the work. Multiple prefaces indicate that the work was first published anonymously. It seems to have outgrown its first ...
(Pelican Publishing Co., 1982)
A mixture of Mother Goose rhymes and fairy tales with pleasant substitutions for the original characters and objects. So Little Jacques Horner and Three Blind Possums. Half of the simple illustrations are colored in.

(Congdon & LattèsCongdon and Lattes, 1981)

The Souls of Lambs: A Fable
(Houghton Mifflin, 1979)
A strange sideways-formatted book. From reading the first quarter or so, I have trouble finding a more specific literary category for it than reflective narrative. Two predilections stand out. First, the main character ...
feldman fieldmouse: a fable
(Harper & Row, 1971)
A fine ninety-six-page novellette about young Lonny's friendship with Fendall and his spirited uncle Feldman. Feldman becomes enraptured with experiencing a moon dance that involves wonderful leaps into the air. He heard ...
A Political Bestiary: Viable Alternatives, Impressive Mandates, and Other Fables.
There is a copy of this book already in the collection, but I could not pass up the opportunity to include a copy signed by Eugene McCarthy. I may even have voted for him! The brief-title-page has this inscription: To ...
