Abstract
Here is a very large pamphlet of sixteen pages remarkable for its slick bright illustrations. Included are: The Dog, the Fox, and the Squirrel; A Proud Rooster; A Horse and His Father; The Cricket. In the first of these, a chicken usually plays the role of the dog's friend in the branches, here played by the squirrel. The dog acts as doorman or, here, brother at the base of the tree in which the squirrel sleeps. The title of the second story is my guess; I cannot recognize this fable of a proud cock humbled by losing to an outsider. In the third, a horse tells his father that he needs to see the big world. They go out together and starve. Then the father shows the son a great place, and the son falls in love with it. It is, he learns, the place where he was born. In the fourth, a cricket envies a beautiful butterfly--and then sees her destroyed by kids. The name Pescador (or something similar) appears on at least one of the illustrations. This artist delights in colorful horizontally-striped t-shirts on various animals. I have never seen a butterfly made out of a human being before! The art work is lively and colorful, but has trouble sustaining a single style. This pamphlet is in a series, from which I have four other volumes. Like them, it has simple questions on the inside of the back cover. The back cover itself lists the fifty books in the series. Only one of the four stories has anything to do with a dog.
