The Three Goats
|Nuchanat Rongroang, ThaiRRShop
|Here is a story not known to me. Three brother goats want to cross a bridge to better pasture, but there is a crocodile beneath the bridge. The youngest brother gets across by urging the crocodile to wait for his meatier brothers. Perhaps the second brother is distracting the crocodile, and the strongest brother butts him into the river. The stated moral is "He who thinks carefully will not be cheated by others." The moral page adds to a standard picture of a child reflecting four images from this particular story. The editors struggle so much with English in this story that it may be hard to follow. A key sentence comes from the second brother: "Please don't eat we up and you released us to go." 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".
