One of twenty in the series, found near the counter as we were settling up a large order of books. Sixteen pages with standard computer art. This is a somewhat uninspired telling of a good story. Daboo is a washerman's donkey. Daboo teams up with a fox. One night they eat some great watermelon. Daboo is in such a good mood that he wants to sing. The fox warns him against waking people up. Daboo answers Nothing will happen. What do you know about singing? I'm a very good singer and I'm going to sing. The fox makes his getaway, but Daboo sings. His braying gets him a sound beating from the watchmen whom he has alerted. Do not ignore the advice of your dear ones fails as a moral because it does not get to the heart of the story, which has to do, I believe, with things like learning our context and our priorities.
