Abstract
Here is an unusual 8¼ x 6 landscape pamphlet with four stories. The title-page also serves as T of C. The first of the four stories is Seven Smart Brothers (2). Seven not-so-smart brothers think that they have lost a brother while fishing, since each brother counts only the other six. A very pleasing panorama shows the brothers fishing (2-3); orange and green elements enhance a basic black silhouette. Don't Be Ridiculous (8) has a mule, a dog, and a cat each surprising people with their ability to speak. Of course those who do not hear the animal speaking promptly deny it with the title's expression. What's In a Name? starts with another breathtaking panorama, this time with just two colors (12-13). A clever short-term worker at a castle gives three different names for himself. The names serve him well by confusing people when he leaves. Aunt Teresa's Turnip is a fine tall tale with a surprising ending. The back cover seems to indicate that this booklet belongs to Set D of Stage 8. Might these indications refer to Literacy 2000?
