This is an 8½ x 11 presentation of five fables. This number differs from the others in the Dreamland set in that it does not include and other stories in its title on the cover, even though it does include four other stories in the volume. The crow in the title-story is pictured with a good deal of white in his plumage, especially around his chest. The fox tells the crow about having heard him sing recently and being enraptured with his voice. Still, it takes several rounds of flattering before the crow begins to sing. In The Bull and the Mouse the bull mistakenly steps on the mouse's tail, and the mouse in revenge hits the bull on the nose with a wooden cross. The mouse then hides while the bull charges against his hole. This pattern is repeated until the bull is exhausted. The Bat and the Weasel really has two weasels, and its moral is Your wisdom is your best friend. OF and BC complete the booklet.
