This is a collection of fables, anecdotes and apologues in which the principal characters are portrayed as animals, birds, fishes, occasionally, as peris or human beings. The narrator is a prince who has been accused by the vizier of his brother, the King of Tabaristān, of plotting to secure the throne for himself and in the course of his defence brings them in to display his knowledge of the high principles requisite in a ruler.
