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. FG has a good moral: One who gives up easily will always have an excuse. The End of the World features the mousedeer and the tiger; the former uses the latter to get out of a well by telling him that the well will be the only safe place when the sky falls. The Mice & the Mongooses suffers from poor proofreading but offers good pictures of the mice-generals' hats. These encumber their retreat and cost them their lives. There is a good version here of The Bear and the Bees. The bear retaliates against the whole hive for the attack of a few bees. His action brings a whole swarm against him.
