Title
The Frightened Lion, illustrated page from 'Baby's Own Aesop'
Description
A startled lion looks blankly out of the picture frame while a small bullfrog, mouth open, looks back at him through a rush-like plant. Behind the lion is a backdrop of pinnate-leafed plants and two swallows. Beside the lion is the rhyme:
"The Frightened Lion

A Bullfrog, according to rule,
Sat a-croak in his usual pool:
And he laughed in his heart
As a Lion did start
In a fright from the brink like a fool.

Imaginary fears are the worst."
