Print-upon-demand has reached a new level with this book. Not only does it not list Townsend as the author on the cover, but it does not even list a publisher! And it is not exactly print-upon-demand, because it was printed three days before I bought it on Amazon. Amazon tells me on their website that the publisher is CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform or something like that. I am surprised to see Townsend resurface. About three or four fables to a page, with a T of C at the beginning. No illustrations inside the book. The illustration of The Ant and the Dove on the cover is nicely done, with an expressive face on the hunter shooting his gun while the ant bites his leg. Rabbits, frogs, and a diminutive stag look on. I am unsure what makes this book either first or big.
