The Lion and the Wild-Buffalo
No Thumbnail Available
This fable is told in keeping with the tradition. The two fierce animals arrive at the same time at a pond. They start to fight over who can drink first until they are both exhausted. When they notice a vulture watching them, they compromise, and the lion lets the water-buffalo drink first. The stated moral is "Compromise can avoid danger." The moral page has a standard setting throughout this Series #10: a child reads a book in an arch-defined opening before the background of a scroll. The artist depicts the hares throughout as wearing capes with hoods, through which their long ears dart. The text editing is unusually well done in this pamphlet. The publisher's symbol seems to be two purple heads reading an open red book. There is a page of vocabulary on the inside back cover, with a picture of all six books in the series on the back cover. The pamphlet is twelve pages long, about 7½" x 6¾".
