This may be my first flip out book, in which a two-page spread includes a page that folds out to make a triptych. The pages are well matched to create two different pictures using the image on the left, one with the right-hand page folded in and one with this page folded out. For example, the lion opens his eye to see the mouse and then catches him; again, the lion is in the net and then out of it. The page-matches are well executed. LM and TH each gets two sets of fold-outs. This is the first lion I know of who cries Help! OF, FS, DS, and SW have one pair of fold-outs each. The moral is introduced in each case with Aesop says. Simple art. The cover-illustration--the donkey carrying a bag of salt--is not involved in the book's six stories! I had had two defective copies of this book before I finally found a copy intact.
