Pleasing if not inspired pictures of TH, GGE, DS, BW, OF, MSA, and CP. A soft picture book whose inside cover asks the adult to read it to its owner. Now (1986) with an accompanying tape, also from Random House. The boy began to think it might even be fun if a wolf came. The frog was the biggest in the pond. The ox simply came to drink; nothing had been crushed. The frog talked to the ox, who paid no attention. The moral of CP: If something seems impossible to attain, try using your brain. I have five different versions of this booklet that I will keep in the collection. They differ chiefly in price, printing, back cover format, and number of books in the series listed on the inside back cover. Copy A cost $.95, is listed on the title-page as a fourth printing, has an ISBN number at the lower right of the back cover, and lists thirty books in the Pictureback Series. The price of Copy B has been clipped off of the upper right front cover. The title-page shows it to be a fifth printing. The back cover is identical with that on Copy A. This booklet lists forty-four books in the Pictureback Series. Copy C, a gift of Sonja Carlson from the Sebastopol flea market, cost $1.25. The title-page shows it to be a seventh printing. The back cover is identical with that on Copies A and B. This booklet lists sixty-four books in the Pictureback Series. Copy D cost $1.25. The title-page shows it to be an eleventh printing. The back cover adds a bar code that includes the ISBN number, which is no longer in the lower right corner. This booklet lists sixty-eight books in the Pictureback Series. This is a well preserved copy. Copy E cost $1.95, but that price is printed with the bar code rather than in the upper right corner of the front cover. The title-page shows it to be a thirteenth printing. Except for the change in price, the back cover is identical with that on Copy D. This booklet lists ninety-four books in the Pictureback Series. This is another well preserved copy.
