Completely Produced by Kids! proclaims the cover of this landscape-formatted art book featuring children's art that accompanies stories from various cultures. I am surprised to find how much material in it is familiar to me. First, there are fables. They include BS done by a child in India on vi; A Hare's Devotion (24), also from India; Too Much Greed Leads to Death (27, otherwise known as The Heron and the Crab), again from India; and FG (46) from Portugal. Other material I recognize includes the Trojan Horse (13); various Greek myths (18-20); Three Greedy Men (26, Chaucer's exemplum about finding death); and Sisyphus (48). What a delight to come across this book!
