The Troublesome Boar
No Thumbnail Available
This story is new to me. A boar bullies all the other animals. They gather to decide how to get rid of him but go each his own way when they feel he is too big and strong for them. Then by chance the boar discharges a crossbow into himself and dies. The story may not suggest the kind of causality that fables usually want to express. We might think that these animals just got lucky! The stated moral is "An ill life, an ill end." The moral page has a standard framework throughout this Series #2: a kitten painting a picture expresses the moral beneath a framed title of the fable. 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".
