The Frame and the full set of animals as a kit come with our 92-page spiral-bound Aesop's Fables instruction book. The introductory pages of the book combined with the practice linen allow you to brush up your needlework skills and become confident with the materials and your chosen equipment before embarking on the design. This instruction book takes you from each animal in turn, beginning with the easiest of the animals, the Squirrel, and finishing with the most challenging, the Woodpigeon.
