This is an 8½ x 11 presentation of six fables. In The Fox and the Lion, the fox not only loses his fear of the lion, but the latter extends his paw in friendship. The picture of the fox extending her paw may be the most awkward in this volume. The moral is good: One cannot get to know a person in a single meeting. The Fir Tree and the Bramble is routine. The Wolves and the Dogs mixes together two fables, I think. Here the relationship of the dogs to the sheep drops out of the fable as it goes along. The Man and the Partridge has highly dramatic facial expressions for both bird and man. The moral of The Baby Crab and the Adult Crab is Every creature has a unique body and no one can change that. I think there are several leaps between the fable and that moral. The last story is The Trees and the Axe.
