This sixteen-page pamphlet is in a series of five titles. Each volume presents nine fables from various sources; the inside front and back covers provide the extra two pages needed. For each fable there is a two-page spread, with the text and a small black-and-white illustration on the left, along with a Phrase of Advice (moral). The right-hand page is a rudimentary full-page line-drawing to color in. TB makes the two friends fat and thin. New to me is The Wolf and the Dog. The former is still howling to call for the latter to return to the jungle. CJ speaks not of a jewel but of a magic stone. The cock buries it back in the ground and says If only this stone were worms which I could eat. Then it becomes worms! The donkey in SS is carrying cotton wool, not sponges, on his second trip, and he is drowned.
