One of twenty in the series, found near the counter as we were settling up a large order of books. Sixteen pages with standard computer art. This version of the story ends more dramaticalliy than some others: the animals realize that they have been tricked and kill the blue jackal. The event is well presented in the cover illustration, which repeats the last page's picture. In this version, the animals are scared by the blue jackal and then he declares to them that he is the messenger of the King of Gods. He throws all the other jackals out of the forest, but then a herd of jackals passes by and starts howling, and the blue jackal starts doing the same.
