Here is an extra copy of this oversize book with heavy paper. One page each for fourteen stories, each told in nine square illustrations. Two are fables. TH has the hare, but not the tortoise, dressed in human clothes. The hare sleeps at a Half Way sign and ends up losing by a nose in the text but a shoulder in the illustration. LM has the mouse but not the lion dressed humanly. The mouse enjoys sitting on the sleeping lion's forehead. The lion is caged first and then just roped. The mouse visits the lion out of sheer friendliness, knowing nothing of his capture or distress. He ends up riding on the lion's forehead.
