Fables : in one volume complete by John Gay( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1711, one of the most popular literary forms in England was the fable. The fable may seem restricted to wise sayings and modern parodies, but authors wrote them to further their religious and literary causes and they also translated politics into a fabulous satirical menagerie. The fable, whatever its subject, was always didactic, and behind the wolves, foxes, rabbits, frogs, and bears was the moral. This appealed to a public that found pleasure in finding instruction in its literature, and explains in part the continued popularity of the most successful collection of English fables, the series by John Gay. -- from Preface
Aunt Sass Christmas stories by P. L Travers( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published for the first time, here are three holiday tales by the author of Mary Poppins--a gift for all ages. P.L. Travers wrote with a signature blend of sugar and spice; her characters, including Mary Poppins, are endearing, outsized, and cozy. Her talent for capturing the perspective of children shines through Aunt Sass Christmas Stories. Each of the stories in this book was written as a holiday gift, sent to her friends and family and never published. Now her millions of readers and generations of filmgoers will recognize how she used her life story to inform her fiction. Whether it is Aunt Sass herself--who Travers admits is partly her inspiration for Poppins--or the Chinese cook whose "heathen" ways show the narrator the path to salvation, or the crass ex-jockey whose life work is not at all what it appears, the characters are unforgettable
