Here is the second of three extra copies of this little book. Identical except for its size (4.75 x 4.375 ) with the larger format book printed in Belgium. Another victory for Neugebauer. A wonderful book. Zwerger's twelve ink-and-wash illustrations are witty and delightful. The best illustration features the camel dancing and the animals laughing. Other good illustrations present the curious country mouse, the amazed Satyr, the leaping frogs, the tortoise and the hare with runners' numbers on their backs, the sow with pacifiers, and the moon-mother with sewing work. The morals are reflective, e.g., for The Dog and the Sow : Foolish comparisons lead to broken friendships.
