A beautiful book by book artist Carol Schwartzott who loves to "develop thoughts in sequence and extend them visually by using a variety of materials" (from Bradbury). This story is based on the Aesop Fable "Jupiter and the Camel." The camel wanted horns like a bull, but instead of horns its ears were cropped. The moral of the tale: Value what you have.
