Here is an extra copy of the Kohl's first printing. That edition is a redoing of the 1988 version, of which I have a signed copy. This version is almost 2" shorter and 1" narrower. The dust-jacket now features the finish of TH rather than FG. Inside the book there is still the triple foldout of the end of the TH race. In fact, the animals from all the fables again reappear in this foldout. Now a moral is added to each fable. "Ass" in that version has become "Donkey" in this version. As I wrote then, this is lovely, lively book. The art is big, witty, and strong. As the verso of the title-page indicates, this special edition was printed for Kohl's Department Stores on behalf of Kohl's Cares. The back-cover notes Kohl's and the exceptional price of $5.
