Here is the second of two extra copies of this magazine. Seven fables presented in weird but enjoyable fashion. The Camel is surprising and strange to me. WS, The Ape and the Fisherman, and The Crow and the Mussel seem to me simply and deftly done. In The Locust and the Fox, the fox is established as near-blind from the beginning of the story. The miller's son is hit on the head with the donkey's pole when the latter gets nervous. The mouse sneezes in the vicinity of the lion, and the lion eats him. He later regurgitates him when he is captured and held upside down. The inside front cover comments on comic book editions of fables.
