MetadataShow full item record
Peter Pauper Press has used virtually the same translation for three different editions. Bewick's is also dated 1941. Carle's adds two later copyright dates. The Bewick translation is the fullest, to judge from The Goat and the Wolf in all three versions. Here Watson provides delightful, witty green-and-brown illustrations. The best may be the title-page's mouse reading a book. This translation is a great source for morals, as of the mole: Brag of an ability, betray a weakness (65). Here the girl has the milk jug on her shoulder (51). Boxed, in perfect condition. Limited to 1650 copies, but not numbered.
