Here is a curiosity. I found a book earlier with all the same bibliographical information except its ISBN. Now I happened to find this book. When I checked whether I already had added the same book to the collection, I noticed my remark that the book I had found first was almost square. This book, by contrast, is about 9 x 12. It also adds a page facing the bibliographical information. On this page there are lines to fill in with the name of the person who gave the book and one's favorite story, character, and picture. The rectangular presentation of the three pigs on both covers there is here circular. This is a second printing. Can the format have changed from one printing to the other? In any case, here is what I wrote back then: Holeinone and Wolf are back. About half of the forty stories here on 224 pages are fables. The production of the book seems physically solid, the paper sturdy, and the graphics quite sharp. Questions interspersed with the text and framed to stand apart raise good issues, like these on 21: Do you think the crab and the fish can trust the heron to help? Why or why not? The crab in this case does not kill the heron. MSA is presented as What Other People Think. The first stage here is to carry the donkey in a wheelbarrow (172). Are the fable illustrations new or details of Wolf's earlier work? I revise my earlier statement to say now that I am surprised to learn that I have sixteen other books on which the two collaborated.
