The Fox and the Monkey
This is an out-of-series booklet, a gift of Jon Lindseth, perhaps done in an earlier pilot set, but now included in Set 3: The Fox and the Monkey. It cost only 7 Baht, while all others cost 10 Baht. Its cover lacks the ...
The Crow and the Swan
(Bō̜risat ʻAksarāphiphat, 1990)
The grammar here is particularly poor. The swan is a comely but silent female with a dapper hat. The best illustration may be that of the crow shivering after his all-night vigil in the water. We should think carefully ...
The Merchant's Gold

The Crow and the Mussel
Excellent moral: Some people are kind to their friends for their own sakes. The rocks here make a very small target for the crow's aerial bombing! [x]
The Mice and the Cat
The best illustration here is that of the old mouse as he offers his congratulations and prepares to ask his question.
