This volume seems a member of a series that also includes Famous Stories from Jataka Tales, although there seems to be no indication here of the book's series. The dust jacket lists many other similar books, including the Jatakas volume, which I have listed under 2007/13. Here there are thirty-four stories on 112 pages after an opening T of C. The dust-jacket is again glued to the covers, which here show the newly constructed lion attacking his makers (see 29) and, on the back, the man with a wheel on his head (see 112). The little monkey again loses his tail to the unwedged log (17). LM is told in unusual fashion. Here the lion is snoring so loud that the mouse tries to wake him up (49)! In the image he even pulls his mane. Each story gets several colored pictures. The illustrations are simple but lively. A good example is the dreaming Brahmin on 85 who soon unwittingly destroys the foundation of his dreams (86).
