    Review quote
    "These tiny stories, in which a wide variety of animals show us how human we really are, are completely uproarious.""-- Saturday Review of Literature""[Thurber] is not only a Landmark in American Humor...in the combination of his prose and pictures he is the funniest artist who ever lived and wrote it too."-- "The New Republic"
    Back cover copy
    Here are a score or more lessons-in-prose dedicated to conventional sinners and proving- what you will. The fables are imperishably illustrated, and are supplemented by Mr. Thurber's own pictorial interpretations of famous poems in a wonderful and joyous assemblage.
