Apparently this volume and the other four in the series include the texts and illustrations first published by Sharma and Rupa in 1993; I have a copy of that book from 1996. The back cover of each of the five books in this series speaks of these evergreen fables, now in five volumes. That now suggests that these texts and illustrations come from an earlier edition. If so, the full-page illustrations and the name of Tapas Guha seem to have been added. That same back cover lists the book as belonging to childern's literature (sic). There are 51 pages after 8 pages of introductory material, including a T of C. The texts seem archaic. There are half-page and full-page illustrations; their styles do not seem to be here as different from each other as in the other four volumes. One of the full-page illustrations The Man and the Lion (17), seems to be in the style of the partial-page illustrations. Among the best of the eighteen illustrations here are DM (25) and The Miser (31). To render the kid for The Kid and the Wolf (50), the artist puts a child standing on the roof! One sometimes has to turn the page to put together a story and its illustration.
