Each of the 101 stories gets one page, with a numbered title above, a colored picture in the middle of the text, and an italicized moral at the end. There is a T of C on 4-8. The cover pictures a bespectacled older man reading to three children, with animals scattered around. Those animals suggest largely Aesopic stories. That impression is confirmed as one pages through the stories. #8, for example, is FG, titled People Hate What They Can't Get (16). GA is curiously titled Work Is Real Worship (18). The pleasing little colored illustrations are often divided into two panels, as in LM (12), SW (24), and FS (99). DS (108) may be one of the best illustrations in a good crop. Close examination of this book shows that it is entirely made up of Aesopic fables without mentioning Aesop once! The dust-jacket is glued to the covers.
