    This children's book was written and drawn by the National Hero of the Philippines Dr Jose Rizal The English text was written by him while he was in Paris during the 1880's and the black and white sketches were scanned in grayscale mode and converted into dark blue line drawings by digital artists Auri Asuncion Yambao and Grace Asuncion using Adobe Photoshop to fill in the colors The effect was a very readable entertaining and current children's book that can be enjoyed by all Filipinos both adults and childrenWhen asked about the moral of the story Rizal said In this version there is a great deal of morality It is the eternal fight between the weak and the powerful In this children's story he showed how the oppressed turtle the Filipinos had the chance to get back to the oppressor monkey the Spaniards Rizal was writing his famous novel Noli Me Tangere Touch Me Not 5 stars when this story was sketched by him in the house of the Pardo de Taveras in FranceThe story is about the monkey and the turtle seeing a floating uprooted banana tree on the river They decide to split the tree with the monkey getting the upper part thinking that it will grow because it has leaves already while the turtle settles for the lower half The monkey's tree dies and the turtle's bears fruits The problem is that the turtle cannot go up the tree to harvest the banana What follows is how the turtle takes revenge of the monkey's selfishness and deceit Like Ambeth Ocampo who wrote the beautiful introduction to this book many Filipino children are told first the foreign folktales before reading our own It's time to pick up this book and know how good Rizal was as storyteller of short crisp literature for children This is not a reproduction or retelling This book is all original
