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 is the story that comes early in the Friends cycle of Kalila and Dimna. There are some changed elements. An older pigeon advises against flying down to get the grain scattered in an open area but is not listened to. He then advises the others, who are caught in the net, to fly up together with the net. Strangely the accompanying illustration shows many of the pigeons walking on the net rather than caught in it. They fly together to a rat that he had helped in the past. Unity is strength.
