A large-format pamphlet picking up on many of the stories contained in Merrill's Tuck-in Tales (1946). One of the repeaters is the last of the eight stories here, Tommy Turtle, a faithful version of Kalila & Dimna's TT story. Students of book history will be interested to compare the job that this book's editor has done on the text in Tuck-in Tales. The story may be half as long! The illustration is the same, but has been cropped on both sides and has lost its extension down around the text. Tommy wears a big hat with a feather and says Yoo hoo unprovoked when he sees some children below.
