The Donkey in the Lion's Skin
While you might initially impress people with new, expensive clothes, eventually your true nature will shine through. Better to spend wisely than to spend just to impress others.

Donkey and his friends were amazed at the butterfly transformation.
Donkey decided to dress up as another animal, hoping to impress others with his new look and style.
First visit in disguise was Rabbit's house. Rabbit yelped at the sight of the might lion and immediately locked the door.
Donkey next tried Cow. The second she saw him, Cow mooed the most frightened moo of her life and ran away.
Finally, Donkey decided to visit the Fox, a natural trickster who had fooled Donkey many times. Fox was resting, but his ears perked up as soon as he saw Donkey.
When Fox heard this, he fell on his back laughing. "Oh my good friend," he said between guffaws, "you look ridiculous. Do you really think anyone is fooled by your fancy clothes?"
