An informal, chatty tour through chapters on animals of the water, the earth, the air, and the mind. Aesop appears in some twelve of the sub-chapters given to individual animals. Also mentioned are the Panchatantra, Gesta Romanorum, Hesiod, and La Fontaine. Three indices at the back help, the first of them offering references to the Aesop material. Aesop is frequently the starting point for a given sub-chapter. The annotated bibliography (224) is aimed at introductory material for the general reader.
