This story works as well with the present donkey as it does with the traditional horse. The victim tells the attacking wolf that he has a thorn in his hoof and so could not run away. He would hate to see his attacker get that thorn caught in his throat. The wolf attends to the thorn and is kicked in the face. The artist does a good job of rendering the wolf as final victim in the last two-page spread. The stated moral is "Do not panic. be calm and collected when disasters strike." The moral page has a standard setting throughout this Series #8: a child goat and an older bear look at a book together in front of a shelf of books. There are problems in the editing of this story, including the mispunctuation of the moral above. Earlier we read "the thorn might be stucked to his throat." The front-cover on both sides has symbols for Green Life publishing, Green Ocean paper, and yessoy ink. 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".
