This is an 8½ x 11 presentation of four fables. The crow in CP sweats a great deal. The broken pot gets so full that the water eventually leaks down the side! Thie groaning mountain about to give birth has a human head like those on Mt. Rushmore. Men and women dispute for a couple of days over the sounds they hear, claiming respectively that it is an earthquake and the groaning of a giant. The moral (logical?) is Empty vessels make much noise. The lion in LM restrains himself from laughing on hearing that the mouse will repay his mercy. The version here of The Donkey and the Lapdog is the most extensive I have seen. In a clever anthropomorphic gesture, the donkey sits down to think.
