One of four numbers that I was able to find in a small store off of St. Catherine. I noticed the shop by chance as I wandered my way through Montreal. The Donkey and the Cricket takes two pages here (29-30). This donkey does not die but gets a clear lesson from the cricket. The extra copy shows curious variations on the inside cover and the back cover. The former mentions no number, date, or editor. The latter lists CIJ numbers through 556, whereas the good copy went only through 545. Did the series go through a phase where they offered less editorial information than earlier and did not peg issues to months or seasons as they had done earlier? $.15.
