The Hare and the Tortoise/A Foolish Miller and His Donkey
Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while the left present the text with one telling symbol. The English is sometimes a little off: on 19 we read lead for led. ...
A Cowardly Bat/A Donkey and a Foolish Wolf/A Crow that was Tricked
The battle between the birds and the animals is set in Africa and gets detailed description. The monkeys wear coconuts and ride elephants! Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The middle story's moral misses ...
A Greedy Dog/The Gold Ax and the Silver Ax
The first story adds a first small dog, from whom the meat is stolen. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while the left present the text with one telling symbol. ...
