dc.description.abstractThis is a charming large-format book of thirteen stories, each composed by third or fourth grade pupils of a specific school in the Mansfield Independent School District (ISD). For each of these fables, the pupils were to use their school's mascot. They either held a contest or worked competitively. Each story has an explicit moral. The front flyleaf explains the project, and two pages after the early T of C list the many participants. The stories are fun! There is, I believe, a surprising confluence in the morals: "Be confident. Be yourself. Be honest. Learn to work with others." Several of the morals are surprising for their humor and irony. "Know that you are great, just don't say it all the time" (12). "Cheetahs never win" (18). A fable where an eagle warns dogs not to disturb a bee-hive until sundown end with "BEE patient" (28). Each fable has a full-page colored illustration. The dramatic art always gets outside its own frame.en_US
