Here is an extra copy of this book and record. This is a pamphlet about 7" x 7½" containing a 45 rpm record. As the cover proclaims, "The book follows the recording word for word." The illustration style is decidedly juvenile. A typical and revealing illustration has Toby the Tortoise dragging Hippy the Hare to the starting line. Toby decides to "take a quick nap." At the end Toby creeps "off into the woods, alone and ashamed, but much wiser for having learned an important lesson." There are sections of verse in the booklet, no doubt sung on the recording.
