Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Giant Crab and Other Tales from Old India (1897) retold by W. H. D. Rouse. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by W. Robinson.
“Crack, crack! went the Crab’s shell; for, big as he was, an elephant was too heavy for him to carry. Crack, crack, crack! The Elephant jumped up and down on his back, and in a very short time the Crab was crushed to mincemeat.
What rejoicing there was among the animals when they saw the Crab crushed to death! From far and near they came, and passed a vote of thanks to the Elephant and his wife, and made them King and Queen of all the animals in the mountains.”
