This is really a coloring book based on Genuine Aesop's Fables Film Characters. What it has to do with a hankie neither the seller nor I can figure out. It measures slightly larger than 10 x 11 and has seven pages of black-and-white outlines to color in. They are in fact colored in by some youthful hands. The booklet helps to bring together two things I have found. One is a pinback button featuring Countess and labelled Aesop's Fables (see Pins under Clothing). The characters featured here are Puffie, Al Squirrel, the Countess, Don Dog, The Fables Gang, and Waffles with a final picture putting Waffles and Countess together on a romantic picnic. One can also find many of these characters and even some of their themes in Aesop's Movie Fables: Cartoons, Stories, Song, Laughs, Morals, Fun, Movie Flips (1931). It is not as clear to me that this whole enterprise is connected with my two framed movie advertisements, Love at First Sight and The Dissatisfied Cobbler.
