Here is one (so far I have one other) out of four booklets in a series. My hat is off to Peter Haddock: for eight pages of images for the fable, they provide two full pages containing some fifty-six stickers. This booklet presents a good fable, one which I think I have not seen before. Longtail grows up with an unusually long tail. With it he accomplishes various sorts of mischief and impresses young mice-women. When the cat attacks, however, the long tail turns out to be a liability. In fact, the cat shortens it to about the length of tail that other mice have. It does not do to boast about what Nature has given us.
