6 Fábulas de Esopo

Full-color cartoons present "The Rooster and the Weasel"; "The Fishermen Who Netted Rocks"; SW; "The Lame Fox and the Elephant"; "The Lion and the Rabbit"; and "The Lion and the Dolphin." "The Rooster and the Weasel" involves multiple accusations by the weasel and self-justifying answers by the rooster. The fishermen spend significant time pulling their net up, all the while discussing what they will do with their immense profits. The Aesopic moral is about balancing joy and sorrow. In "The Lame Fox and the Elephant" the sick elephant dismisses the lame fox; if she cannot cure herself, why should others entrust themselves to her care? The lion leaves the sleeping rabbit in order to hunt a stag, trusting stupidly that the rabbit will be there when he returns. My prize in this 16-page pamphlet about 7" x 8" goes to the first illustration of the weasel cooking the rooster in a pot over a fire. The artist goes well beyond the writer's text, who simply has the weasel calmly devouring the rooster.
