The ATU Fable Index

The ATU Fable Index: Like the Dewey Decimal System, But With More Ogres: PICK A NUMBER, ANY NUMBER, and I’ll tell you a story. Fifty-nine? Hunker down for “Fox and the Sour Grapes.” Eleven hundred fifty-one? Good choice—that’s “The Ogre Overawed by Displaying Objects.” Five hundred? That’s “Guessing the Helper’s Name,” or, as you might know it better, “Rumpelstiltskin.”
