Abstract
There are several elements that are unusual in this version of FC. The story begins abruptly with the crow "picking up the meat": where it came from is not clear. The illustrator renders the crow's "song" creatively by picturing an opened tin can and a pot. When the crow drops the meat, the fox moves to grab it with his paws. The stated moral is "The sweet words from the crooked fellows cause pain and sorrow." The moral page adds to a standard picture of a child reflecting four images from this particular story. The English runs into a problem at the key moment in the story: "The cunning fox to closed the meat in his mouth immediately." Then again we read "The fox ate the meat delicious and laughed at him. The crow saw the fox very sadly." 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".
