The Tiger, the Brâhman, and the Jackal
Steel, Flora Annie Webster
A large-format hardbound book which presents Steel's strong telling well. (Tales of the Punjab is represented in this collection under 1894/1983). The version of this tale is effective by having the jackal get the tiger to take the initiative in explaining how it all happened. The illustrations are brightly colored. Perhaps the best of them is the second-to-last, in which the tiger is confronting the apparently stupid jackal. One page near the middle of the book is torn slightly.
