The Donkey in the Lion's Skin: A Retelling of Aesop's Fable
This book is 6 x 8½ and has 24 pages. The illustrations were prepared digitally. This version identifies the donkey as foolish at the story's very beginning. In a curious development, the donkey scares away people and animals with his growling, but then is so pleased that he brays. It is the braying that gives him away to the fox. Silverman again does a good job with facial expressions. While the donkey displays his emotions well, the lion's expression is nicely consistent. Would a dead lion's skin have open eyes? With this book I seem to have all the titles printed in the Read it! Readers series on the Blue Level. Reinforced library binding.
