The Hares and the Frogs
No Thumbnail Available
This is the traditional fable of frightened hares being surprised that they frighten frogs. In this version, there is no mention of suicide, only of fright-induced flight. The stated moral is "There is always someone else who is worse off than we." 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".
