dc.description.abstractThe presentation in this large-format pamphlet is engaging. The sixteen pages alternate regularly, with full-page colored illustrations on the left and the texts in both English and Tagalog on the right with a smaller illustration. In an unusual turn, this version starts the fable with the wolf seeing a farmer chase a crow. Most versions have not a wolf but a fox, and there is usually no pursuit by the farmer. The crow is carrying not the usual meat or cheese but a fish. This booty is apt for the Philippines! The best and most creative of the illustrations may be that from 6, which is repeated on the front cover. It shows a tree full of patches of a musical score. On 6, the balloon showing the wolf's thoughts or speech has in it a precious necklace of jewels. In the meantime, several hot-air balloons float through the air in the background. I think that this booklet contains some of Moss's most creative illustrations. Several pictures include eyes and eyeglasses. Before the wolf has the cheese, there is on 9 a framed picture of him in formal attire with a huge cheese in his mouth--or is that candy he would bring to get himself a better reception? On the last pages of the booklet, one wolf has a lovely bouquet in his mouth. By 11, both characters are made out of a musical score. This version's moral is Being vain could bring your downfall. The back cover folds out. The inside back-cover contains here a basic mask that can be filled out to represent either a wolf or a crow. The activity page here offers a crow skeleton with an invitation to draw feathers with a black marker. This book is apparently one of five in the set.en_US
