dc.description.abstractThis toy book is unusual in its size, since it is 4¾ x 6; most other toy books that I have seen have been larger. It is also perhaps unusual in having a two-color cover but multi-colored images on each of its eight pages inside. The fables seem to me closest to Hey's fables. That is, they are not really fables but most frequently a conjunction of a dialogue and a reflection. A boy asks a butterfly what it lives on, and the butterfly answers blossom-scent, and sunshine fair. The poetry suffers from needing to repeat sentence subjects: The cow she said nothing in reply. The last story comes closest to being a fable. A boy asks a goat why he has a beard and horns. The child tests the goat's answer by pulling his beard, and learns to stop doing that by experiencing the goat's horns!en_US
