This is one of four sixteen-page pamphlets of mid-size (5¾ x 8¼), each portraying one story. The texts seem to be identical with those used in Angel Publishing House's My Favorite Stories: Read & Colour 1-5. One clue is that the first of the series to which these books belong contains the story Si Luncai. These two series were apparently first published in 1997. This 2000 edition is labeled revised. This booklet belongs to the second series. The version here is different from the traditional one. The insulted donkey sees the horse carried on a pole, since one of its legs was broken. It would be shot and its meat given to other animals as food. The horse begged the donkey to help him. But the donkey could only stand and watch. There is a great expression of anger and disdain on the horse's face on 7.
