dc.description.abstractHere is the second copy of this book. It has tan rather than orange endpapers. The spine is weak. A favorite of mine. The book begins with an impassioned plea for play for little folks. It presents a narrative and then the same story in dramatic form. (Note that one similar volume I have was done one year later.) New to me: The Lion and His Echo and The Farmer's Three Enemies. Differently told: the fox sees other beasts go into the sick lion's den. The river fairy is a hand: my, how secular can we get! The ant lets the grasshopper in and gives him food. The sun tells the wind that each has strengths. (The bet of the sun and wind follows the poorer tradition.) The mice are interrupted by a servant and then by a boy and a dog together. The lion is tied up while asleep; there is no trap or net. The end-paper illustrations are lovely: scenes of the MM before and after her loss face each other at the front, while the piping wolf and dancing kid are together at the rear. The good copy is quite well preserved.en_US
