dc.description.abstractHere is one of a series of introductory readers for primary school. It presents six stories, listed on a beginning T of C. Most are animal stories. The first tells of a practical joke gone bad, I believe. Cock has hare believing that he sleeps better because he has his head cut off every night. Hare goes home and tries it. Bad idea! "Zebra Soup" uses an old fable motif. A man tied to a tree gives a passing hyena a false story about why he is tied: he says that he will not eat zebra soup with a fly in it. He gets the hyena to take his place tied to the tree. That is not at all the reason why he was tied there, the hyena learns after he gets a whipping. And the man escapes! "The Wise Tortoise" features tortoise as umpire in a traditional fable motif. Asked to judge a case against the dastardly hyena, he gets the hyena back under the rock and leaves him pinned there, while the victim antelope can go free. I fail to get the lesson in "Two Foolish Friends" about two humans, but it has a lovely two-color image of one of the friends riding a zebra. "The Hungry Nurse" has a fable motif in it, when the dastardly hyena is proved guilty of eating the lion cub she was to bury: the lion mother and her sister look in the hyena's mouth and find fragments of the dead cub. The last of the six is a "pourquoi" on why hyenas limp.
