dc.description.abstractTwenty-eight tales on 96 pages after an opening T of C. Each story gets several colored pictures. The Selfish Bird (13) tells of a bird who found grain scattered on a freeway and advised her flock not to come help harvest it because of the dangers. She really wanted all of it for herself, and she was trampled to death by a cart. Selfishness seems the biggest target of Jatakas. Ingratitude might come in in second place. The Hunter and the Three Friends (35) comes in from the Panchatantra cycle, and the story soon includes a mouse with the deer, tortoise, and woodpecker to fill out the escape. The Greedy Woman (56) tells of the Brahmin's widow who is gifted by the Brahmin, returned as a golden goose, with a valuable feather. She eventually rips all the feathers from the goose, but they turn to ordinary feathers, and he departs from such a greedy woman. The title-page picture is of the supposedly saintly jackal who eats a rat every day (60). The title-character in The Kind Hearted Deer saves the king who was hunting him; invited to live at the palace, he asks instead that the king stop hunting animals (89). A collection of colorful cartoon animals graces the front cover. The dust-jackets repeat the covers.en_US
