Abstract
The presentation in this large-format pamphlet is fun. The sixteen pages alternate regularly, with full-page colored illustrations on the left and the texts in both English and Tagalog on the right with smaller colored illustrations. The left-hand illustrations are contemporary and may have been done with chalk or pastels. The right-hand illustrations are deliberately primitive. The first several illustrations present well the forest of the lion's hair and the strange scene of a mouse on a lion's nose. Notice the colorful lion pointing to the mouse to flee on 7. When the mouse hears the lion's roar, This was the chance the mouse had been waiting for. The moral is: Judge a person not by his size but by his character and capabilities. The inside back-cover contains a punch-out lion with a mouse to ride his back. The colorful lion appears again on the activity page. The reader is asked to count the number of mice hiding in the lion's mane. This book is apparently one of six in the set.
