The moral is just as surprising as in its other use in this series: In "The Two Roosters and the Eagle," two roosters compete for one particular hen.
One of them even picks flowers for her. The two are pictured well on Unfortunately, in this illustration the eagle seems to be swooping down on them even during the fight. The point in the text, as generally, is that, after winning, the victor flies high and celebrates and so makes himself into a victim. A doctor explains that a pear is good for our teeth but bad for our spleen, while a jujube -- a Chinese date, I here learn -- is good for our spleen but bad for our teeth. The patient claims a good way to get the good and avoid the bad, namely to chew the pear but not to swallow it and to swallow the jujube straight down.
How might this story lead to the moral "A little learning is a dangerous thing" 12? The monkey tries to imitate the fisherman and gets tangled in the net. The Treasure in the Grape Grove. The second fable substitutes an egret for the usual crane. The wolf here is "chocked" by a bone. Might that be "choked"?
The third fable is new to me. A man builds his house with the firewood next to the fireplace.
A friend advises him to move the wood away from the fire. The host refuses to listen to him.
A few days later, the house catches fire. Soon after putting out the fire, the host holds a feast to thank his neighbors for their help. He seats the most hurt closest to him. A wise neighbor says that he should honor most the friend who gave him the good but spurned advice, and the host agrees and feels ashamed. The Fox and the Food. This version of "The Fisherman and the Fish" offers an explanation for the usually non-motivated expectation of the fisherman that fish would respond to his flute-playing.

It was published by Blakiston. Recently found these old books at my parents. New to me is "Holding the Funeral Procession"
When he played, friends and neighbors came together to enjoy his music. He expected that fish would do the same.
The moral for this version is "There is no free lunch in the world. This fox soon found a hole curiously placed "beside a tree" and crawled into it.
Where did this hole lead? Usually in the fable it leads into a tree, where a shepherd has stored his lunch. The third story is not well told but is nonetheless a fine fable. A poor man visits a temple and is snubbed by a monk. While he is there, a rich man comes and the monk fawns all over him.
Accosted then by the poor man for showing favor to the rich, the monk lies, saying that he inwardly respects the poor man. The latter hits him on the head with his cane saying "Good. And now I hit you because I respect you, too" 12! Distributed to the book trade by Publishers Group West, c Judge Rabbit and the tree spirit: Lexile measure ; Ages ; PrK-Gr.
