Slight correction: "The Boar Pig" is actually story #3. "She-Wolf" which is the first story does not show up as such in the table of contents). "Laura" is story #2.
As to the stories. I only read "The Boar Pig" & "The Open Window" out of that grouping.
I agree with issybird in that my enjoyment level varied as to "whether or not [I felt] that justice has been served" or even whether or not a lesson was being taught/learned.
I truly disliked "The Boar Pig". It was basically one rude, nosy woman being "swindled" (for lack of a better word) by an equally, if not more so, rude and obnoxious little girl; While the second woman got thrown in the middle.
As to "The Open Window": What the heck was that?? I don't know what we were supposed to get from the story, but I would have like to have known what happened next. I left very angry with the young - um story teller. The whole thing was very odd.
Of the 11 stories I did read, I found "She Wolf, "Laura", and "The Treasure Ship" to be the most enjoyable. "The Treasure Ship" was also one of the most frustrating because I really really wanted to know what happened in the end.

Reason: had an extra "the"
