    One thought on “Fables For Our Time/Further Fables For Our Time”

    1. A book of 28 modern fables reflecting on American life. A few were very funny and clever. A couple were obviously written to fit his punny moral. Thurber illustrates 9 poems at books end. Some of them famous others not much, but as reader enjoyed the one's I wasn't familiar with and they ended up being my favorites (Curfew Must Not Ring To-Night by Rose Hartwick Thorpe and Barbara Frietchie by John Greenleaf Whittier).

    2. This was a book from our inherited library: Great humor, wisdom, with a touch of satire thrown in. Some of the fables had more of an impact on others,The illustrations at for the poems were wonderfully done as well. Enjoyed it.
