Twenty-two numbered fables in a 4¾ x 7 paperback, each fable taking two pages that include one colored illustration. There is a T of C at the front. The illustrations are better conceived and executed than is often the case in children's books I have found from India. Good examples include The Butcher and the Thieves (7) and WL (47). The sick lion has bottles of medicine with him (39)! Like Little Book of Fables for Children & Adults from Manila in 2001, this book has the story of the fox who captures a turtle but cannot break his shell in order to eat him. The clever turtle suggests that the fox put him in water to soften him up. Once the turtle hits the water, he is gone (25)! There are eight pages of colored advertisements at the back.
