Abstract
This book has waited some time to be catalogued. Its first unusual characteristic is the covering on front and back cover and spine: like an extra layer of saran wrap, only less smooth. Texts include Chinese characters and a Western equivalent for each character. Every page except 174 has a cartoon-like colored illustration. There are plenty of fables, right from the first story, TB (1), which starts with a picnic lunch interrupted by the bear. AD (7) and "The God Full of Gold" (13) follow, with "Three Bulls and a Lion" (19), CP (25), and TH (31) next. Soon fables are intermixed with several stories I do not recognize. Further fables include "The Wolf and the Dancing Lamb" (55), BS (61), GGE (67), FG (73), "The Fox and the Goat" (77), "The Woman Threatening to Throw a Child to the Wolf" (89), FM (93); "The Doctor and the Blind Woman" (97), and "The Stag at the Pool" (103). In fact, the great preponderance of stories in this 288-page book are fables I can recognize. Two of the more unusual illustration patterns belong to SW (187) and the river god in "The Man Who Lost His Hatchet" (205). The river god seems to be Santa Claus!
