The Rabbit Who Overcame Fear
Here is a later or -- perhaps more likely -- earlier printing of a book already in the collection, with slight changes in format, for example on the page describing the Jataka Tale Series, now presented in two columns. The verso of the title-page also gives an address now for Dharma Publishing. The back cover does not list a price. This is the standard tale of the timid rabbit who hears the thud of a ripe mango dropping near him and thinks it is the end of the world. The accent here is on the altruism of the lion who stops the animals from running off a cliff into the sea. I do not like Meller's simple art style. I now have five booklets in this Dharma series that has grown to twenty; the others came out in 1986, 1989 (x2), and 1990. Again here there are two double-pages at the end for children to color.
