Aesop's Fables: The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse & The Boy Who Cried Wolf
Here is a new presentation of the same art that Hirata used in 1989 for his Joie set. The art here is certainly superior in presentation to the Peter Haddock series (1989?). It is darker than Joie's art, sometimes stronger and sometimes less exact. This series, advertised to contain four booklets, does not pair the same stories together as Joie or Haddock. It also arranges the small symbols differently, sometimes grouping them together on a pair of facing pages. The texts are not the same as in Joie or Haddock. In TMCM, the town mouse came to the country intending to stay a week. The next week the country mouse travelled to visit him. In BW, the workers walked away from the boy and laughed the third time that he tried to fool them.
