Abstract
There are four fables in this 16-page, large-format (almost 8›" x 11") booklet. TH is told in traditional fashion, but the booklet's cover presents the hare riding on the tortoise. The hare also happens to be holding a golden egg. I think that there is a prominent folktale that presents this business of hare riding on tortoise, and the riding has nothing to do with this fable. The producing of golden eggs in GGE goes on "for sometime" [sic]. "However, the richer they were, the greedier they became" (7). "The Eagle, the Cat and the Wild Sow" features a cat "not happy to see her neighbors so joyful and content" (10). "The Fox and the Goat" completes the four. Simple, lively illustrations. Why might the cover have a howling wolf in the background?
