His first book did very well a real hit; everyone applauded it, and before long it had been translated sometimes not very well into practically every language. The second was even better than the first, and several North American professor "The Fox is Wiser" One day when the Fox was bored, and somewhat melancholy and money-less, he decided to become a writer, and applied himself immediately to that end, as he loathed the kinds of people who say I am doing to do this or that and then never do it.
The second was even better than the first, and several North American professors counted among the most illustrious of the academic world of those remote times enthusiastically praised it and even wrote books on the books about the Fox's books. Thenceforth the Fox justifiably deemed himself satisfied, and the years went by and he published nothing more.

An influential one too, considering the praise that this dinky edition of fables from Acorn Book Company, carries inside.

Most of them just made me smile, maybe a few I went back and re-read. They shot him. A century later, the repentant flock erected a statue of him, which looked very good in the park.
From then on, every time Black Sheep appeared they were promptly executed so that future generations of common, ordinary sheep could also indulge in sculpture. Jul 07, N Simbala rated it really liked it. Aesop fables done with tongue in cheek. Early Christmas gift! Thank you.
