Here is an English version of original French work. I now have five of six books in the English series, three in the French, and one in the German. As I mentioned of the parallel German edition, Lobo the wolf lives in a forbidding hut that even the devil would not inhabit. Lobo is starving. Fablio expands the tale considerably. Lobo sees a tender lamb walking along, but soon a ewe picks her up in his fast car. Lobo grabs onto the car and is pulled along into the city. He tries to steal her purse, but she strikes him and calls the police. He steals a bear's wallet but finds in it nothing but holy cards! Lobo next tries stealing from a grocery store, but is caught. Cosh the policeman comes. Lobo next tunnels into bank territory, gets onto the roof, and comes down the chimney. The security system discovers him, and the police give chase. Cosh ends up recovering the money-sack when it will not fit through a manhole. Lobo meets a guard-dog and is apparently offered a security job. Both the translation of La Fontaine and the cartoon text modify La Fontaine slightly, I believe, when they say that Lobo may be running still. This text has wets for whets of Lobo's appetite on what would be 4. This copy is inscribed at Christmas, 1971, The cartoon pictures are evidently movie stills.
