The Ass, the Cock and the Lion
The story's illustrations here are marked by a very colorful cock and a grisly end for the ass. The text uses stile where we might say fencepost, and substitutes nearly for nearby. The moral is (sic) False confident leads ...
The Sick Lion
Curiously, this version shows paw-prints as the fox speaks, from a distance, with the lion. The text says only that he looks closely at the ground in front of the lion's den without mentioning (or letting him mention) ...
The Frog and the Ox
There is here a very dramatic presentation of the ox's footstep, which crushed most of the frogs to death. I will need some work to get used to pink frogs! People may be ruined by attempting to change the work of the nature.
The Ant and the Bird
This ant is orange. The bird breaks off and tosses a branch into the stream. The ant thanks the bird and says (as in LM) that someday she may be able to help the bird. There is a lively illustration of the ant's bite. ...
The Old Man and His Donkey
(Bō̜risat ʻAksarāphiphat, 1990)
MSA. This sometimes pink, sometimes purple, sometimes orange donkey with the multi-colored and differently-colored mane seems to me to be from the flower-child generation. Otherwise the story runs along the usual paths. [x]
The Ant and the Grasshopper
Different: G and A are friends singing together every day. There is a bad sentence early in the story: Rainy is coming, let us taking food and preparing our resident. The bad time for the grasshopper is not winter but ...
The Fox and the Crow
One additional extra copy is a gift of Jon Lindseth, January, '95, one of the two gifts he sent that made me aware of the existence of these books. This crow has a red beak! The fox, though artistically not excellent, ...
The Lion and the Mouse
As with The Fox and the Monkey, this title-page has no background stripes. On the moral page of almost all booklets, an owl accompanies the saying. Here it is a little critter of unknown genus wearing a baseball cap. [x]
The Boy and the Wolf
The shepherd is Jimmy. Perhaps the best illustration is the lively one for They went back with angry. He fools the men twice and cannot attract them for the genuine, third wolf attack. [x]
The Bundle of Sticks
The best illustrations here are of the five sons' exasperation in trying to break the bundle. [x]
