MetadataShow full item record
An oversized book on cheap paper with some very nice colored illustrations. These vary from section to section of the book, from black-and-white through monochrome and duotone to five-color images. Five fables occur in a black-and-white section, from 133-40. Now, here is a surprise: these very five texts and their illustrations occur on the same pages of (More than 30 of) American Childhood's Best Books (1942) from the American Crayon Company. ( The Fox and the Little Red Hen and As I Was Going to St. Ives are interspersed in both cases. The images for the former are changed here.) Otherwise what we have here is a nice collection of kids' material of all sorts. Some crayoning on the title page.
