Abstract
This large-format floppy coloring book gives each of thirty-one fables four pages of line drawings. The versions tend to soften traditional fables and to present cute animals for children to color. Thus the wolf only chases the lamb out of the water and threatens to eat him, and the lion punches the ass on the nose for dividing the spoils equally. The lioness' answer about her small litter is not that the one is a lion but that the one is always a king or a queen. The monkey was apparently sailing alone; he is rejected by the dolphin not because he misunderstands something like Piraeus but because he has boasted that the royal carriage would be sent to fetch him. The dolphin sees there are no people on this island! CP involves a watering can. The best of these simple illustrations might be that of the ass on the farmer's lap.
