Abstract
Here is the fifth book of this series of ten. The word count is 265. Sixteen pages. Finding two of the books of this series led to finding more. Acquiring individual copies, I arrived at a total of nine out of the ten. I had to order the whole series of ten then from the publisher to make sure I got this last member. It looks like Dominie yielded the rights to this book to the Pearson Learning Group sometime after 2003. Perhaps the best illustration in this good presentation of the fable is that of Ali crying out the truth in vain (12); it is repeated on the title-page. The boy's two jokes are a few days apart. The wolf attacks the day after the second joke. The boy tries throwing stones at the wolf when the townspeople do not respond to his cries for help. In the end the wolf makes off with one sheep. Ali brings the remaining sheep down to town and blames the townspeople for not helping, but they answer that he brought all this on himself. Now the series is complete!
