Abstract
There are three stories in this oversized pamphlet. The first, The Wise Judge from Italy is illustrated by Eldon C. Doty (2). It tells the story of a wise judge who saves an innocent man by decreeing a punishment that makes the mourning family suffer as much as the innocent perpetrator. The second story, Señor Coyote Settles a Quarrel from Mexico, is illustrated by Marion Eldridge (10). This story repeats the age-old moif of having the disputants return to their original positions. Here those disputing are a rabbit and a rattlesnake which had been pinned by a falling rock. The rabbit's reward, as proposed by the rattlesnake, is to be eaten! The third story is The Pied Piper of Hamelin from Germany, illustrated by David Wenzel (18). The moral points to the evil of breaking a promise. The page of acknowledgements (30) acknowledges only the second text of these three.
