The Monkey and the Tortoise
As told in English and Illustrated by José Rizal
Original text in English with sketches
The tortoise and the monkey found once a banana tree floating amidst the waves of a river. It was a very fine tree, with large green leaves, and with roots, just as if it had been pulled off by a storm. They took it ashore.
Let us divide it, said the tortoise,
and plant each its portion.
