The first story adds a small dog, from whom the meat is stolen. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while the left present the text with one telling symbol. The English is sometimes a little off. The morals sometimes miss the point. All in this series of nine (I am apparently missing the tenth) add hard covers and a title page to the JOIE softbound text. The inside color is never as brilliant as JOIE's. The covers are the same, but with new fonts and a cameo of Aesop's Fables instead of doubled print; the volume number, Illustrated Fantasy Book for Children, and the horn-blowing angel are gone. This book printed in India is identical with the one Haddock printed in England and bound in Belgium.
