Similar to, and in a series with, Jungle Doctor's Fables (1955/66). Nine stories present monkey wisdom, which is the kind of foolishness that Christianity overcomes. The stories are sometimes good, sometimes belabored. To me the morals seem always forced. The first story makes the good point that the one way for a goat to become a lion is to be eaten by a lion. The second story has a monkey in a lion's skin.
