Abstract
This is a classic Aesopic fable. The tall pine insults the thorny bush as useless by contrast with the pine's nobility. Two episodes challenge that view. A lion is chasing a rabbit, and the thorny bush invites the rabbit to hide inside the bush. Two woodchoppers chop down the pine because of its excellent wood. The artist shows us the dying pine weeping on its side. The editor has a quaint expression: "The lion did not dare to go to catch the rabbit for fear that the thorns would hurt hands." Hands! In "Teachings obtained from this tale" we find "Do not be proud that you have a better ability than others. Everyone has different advantages and disadvantages." The page for this moral includes an outline of a major character from the story and a colored model to use in coloring in this outline. The outside front-cover has a symbol for Green Life publishing, and the inside front-cover repeats that along with a symbol for Green Ocean paper. The publisher's symbol seems to be two purple heads reading an open red book; that symbol appears 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".
