Good touching stories! Do not miss, e.g., The Trapped Bird (15). Several stories are not clearly or explicitly resolved, e.g. The Jump (34). There are at least four Aesopic fables here: The Two Friends (and the bear, 13); What the Little Mouse Saw on Her Walk (the rooster and the cat, 41); The Bat (44); and The Quail (usually The Lark and Her Young, 47). Three other stories come very close to being fables: The Old Man and the Apple Trees (14), The Peasant and the Horse (23), and The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson (27). The titles in the book are not from Tolstoy.
