Hi Sue. As no-one had responded to your post, I thought that I might come to the aid of a damsel in distress and have used three different dictionaries - one of which was Chambers - and, like you, cannot understand why 'label' would be the answer to 'tale'. I have also used Roget's Thesaurus and, under 'label' there is no reference to 'tale'. It will be interesting to see whether anyone else posts a response as I am as bemused as you are. Best wishes, Caravaggio.
