MetadataShow full item record
A sideways pamphlet of fifteen fables alternating black-and-white and colored pairs of pages. Some fascinating and different details: A boy scout chides the son for riding the donkey. The old man tips the donkey into a duck pond and goes home without it. The happy donkey has a good splash and trots away to the fields. The cow swallows the frog by accident. The hedgehog's arrival forces the fox to declare the grapes sour. New to me: The Cowardly Pig. The best illustration is of the proud bull frog. The good copy has some crayoning on the cover and some painting inside; the extra copy has some creases in its first and last pages.
