Abstract
I was surprised to note the publisher here. These are good Christian fables. The first puts a bobcat and his natural prey, a rabbit, in a tough scene together. Moral? Sometimes if you expect enough of someone, you get it. Good! The second story frames a question well about two young beavers and guilt. Plain Riches dramatizes wealth and poverty in the persons of a greedy cheetah and a gracious elephant. Give Us a Riddle is less defined at its end, I would say. A monkey and lion riddle against each other and from different perspectives. The final fable is Old Stories. It suggests nicely that the boring old stories people reject have something important to offer. The art includes monochromes, silhouettes, and multi-colored full pages -- including a strong two-page spread at the center of the book.
