This is a small book measuring just over 3 x 4 . It contains three fables. Both characters in TH are talkative. The animals are well costumed here and in each of the stories. FS is also well done. 56 deserves a special prize for the excellent rendition of both characters' eyes. DLS goes into length in the story of the killing of the lion that eventually yields his skin for the donkey to get into. It also develops the donkey's previous unhappiness. Others in the jungle made fun of him. Hussey again does a great job with eyes on 81 and 83. Pairs of pages tend to alternate between pictures and text. Hussey's brushstrokes love to accentuate hair and its individual strands.
