Abstract
This fable, new to me, contrasts the productive hen with the playful cat. The best illustration has the cat taking a swipe at a bird in a cage. The cat becomes jealous of the hen and lies on the hen's eggs. The owner gets angry and picks up a stick to attack the cat. The stated moral is "One who does not know his own limitation will cause trouble." The editor continues to have trouble in this series, here with the typo "manwho" on the first page. In this particular series, the characters seldom have English "bubbles" directly expressing their thoughts or statements. These are narrated at the bottom of the page. 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; it is repeated three times. 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".
