Abstract
This is a delightful retelling of a classic fable. A man sees a rabbit run into a tree and knock himself out. Happy to have been given an easy meal, the man waits at the tree for the next rabbit to come and knock himself out. In this telling, the man is a lazy son sent to work a garden by his parents. On the way, he witnesses the rabbit accident and then spends all his days at the tree waiting for more repetitions. The father comes to check and is angry and assigns his lazy son double work. The best image here may be that repeated on the cover: the rabbit knocks himself out by speeding into the tree. The stated moral is "Nothing in this world that can easy to get without doing anything." The English is sometimes difficult in this story, as is clear in its title and moral. 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".
