    Description

    The author, Guy Wetmore Carryl, was an American humorist and poet.

    He was born in New York City, the first-born of author Charles Edward Carryl and Mary R. Wetmore.

    One of the earliest works by the American parodist, Guy Wetmore Carryl, these fables are adapted from Jean de La Fontaine’s original writings. The fables are written in verse, and are light-hearted re-tellings of fables from two centuries before, each ending with a moral and a pun.

    Among the more celebrated of the fables are The Persevering Tortoise and the Pretentious Hare, The Arrogant Frog and the Superior Bull, and The Sycophantic Fox and the Gullible Raven.
