Abstract
In this story, a monkey has wanted for a long time to get to the other side of the river. He asks a turtle, who conveys him, but the monkey jumps off too soon out of his eagerness to get there. The stated moral is "Haste makes waste." This edition has some problems with English grammar, as in the clause "Because of over there had full of fruits." Again, "When the monkey was glad and jumped on the turtle's shell" is presented as an independent sentence. Also we have the statement "There're near the bank" when the author surely meant "They're near the bank." In this particular series, the characters seldom have English "bubbles" directly expressing their thoughts or statements. These are narrated at the bottom of the page. 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".
