The Cunning Toad
This version sets the situation in unusual fashion. Apparently, this old toad is a long-time dweller in this forest. Challenged by a rabbit to explain how they are to know that he is a good doctor, he answers You just ...
The Troublesome Boar
This fable is new and strange to me. This boar makes a nuisance of himself, but no other animals will join the mouse in standing up against him. Then the boar happens to run into a loaded cross-bow and to discharge it ...
The Fox and the Goat

The Lion, the Donkey and the Fox
The hare, which the fox has caught, is graphically presented as three equal hunks of meat. The spoil which the fox is then challenged to divide now includes both the hare and the dead donkey. This booklet represents one ...
