The story here is on 6 to 21 of this booklet with circled page numbers. This is a strong version of an ancient fable. The rivers love to chat with each other, but they never want to mention the sea, because the sea turns them into salt water. They confront the sea, which is well pictured as a stern older man from the cover on. The sea's answer is: Very well, stop flowing into me. The rivers, whatever they do, cannot stop flowing into the sea. The foolish rivers realised that there was no escape from the sea and stopped complaining after that. The booklet is one of five booklets from this series ordered from The Book Depository in the UK. I suspect that some further members of the series will elude me.
