    One thought on “Pepper & Salt or Seasoning for Young Folk”

    1. An old classic, this compilation of fables, illustrated in monochromatic black and white by the author, was originally published in 1887. Pyle wrote in a very conversational, court-jester-ish tone, meaning for them to be read aloud, I think. My girls really liked the stories, which contain moral and situational dilemmas out of which each story's protagonist must find their way. In the midst of the stories are also full page poems that are beautifully illustrated and quite witty.

    2. This book is written by a favorite author of mine. His story brought me back to younger days when I would sit for hours reading my favorite book. It was compilation of many stories, each with a moral and ethical outcome. Brought back the "feel goods", into my heart.

    3. My father read these stories to my sister and me many times throughout our childhood. There is something magical about this book. It lies not only in the wonderful fairy tales, but the magic of holding a small, old, fabric bound book in one's hands.

    4. Some entertaining stories rather along the lines of Grimm's Fairytales or Aesop's Fables, as well as some poetry of a silly variety.

    5. This book is so fun! Short stories punctuated by witty moral poems and, of course, brilliant illustrations by the author. Read it to your kids, then read it again.
