Quoting one of the fables; I remember reading this book thirty years ago. It is superb. The pictures are excellent too. I can still recall the man leaping down into the lion's pit to get the lady's glove, also the pictures of birds (shrikes, I think). I'll buy this one right away, my daughter will love it.
All the illustrations are marked by Thurbers unique style.The poems, however, may be slightly less resistant to temporal attrition..

I first read this book as a child when someone gave it to my father, who was a lifelong admirer of Thurber. Each of the 75 brief glimpses of wisdom and humor is priceless.Published 2 months ago by amused observer

The funniest and best ever. If this slim little book doesn't make you smile, you're in trouble. Thurber is a literary giant of his time, and everyone should know him.Published 7 months ago by J. D. Portnoy
