Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger and sometimes less exact. This series is advertised to contain four booklets, and I now have three. (See the others under 1994 and 1995, respectively). The series does not pair the same stories together as Joie or Haddock. It also arranges the small symbols slightly differently. The texts are not the same as in Joie or Haddock. In TH, What had been the cover picture in both the Joie and Haddock series takes its place as the start of the race on 6. The second story, which has in every edition only four full-page illustrations, changes even its name from the previous series' The Bear and the Travelers.
