dc.description.abstractThis book is very close to another that I have, but it also shows tantalizing differences. The most obvious is that the back cover (and the back dust jacket) advertise not Nestlé's milk but rather its competitor Ovaltine! What a surprise! Another striking difference lies in the different introduction and typesetting for the inside cover's list of not eight but five other books in the series. The lower number makes me think that this printing is earlier (though both books are inscribed in 1935). The imprints tend to be much cleaner here. The typesetting of The Children's Press on the title-page is slanted here, and the verso has Printed in Great Britain, not British Made. The spine's title runs from bottom to top, and there is no price indicated. To show the similarities between the two books, let me include portions of my remarks from there. In fact, we consulted my website while I was in the store to find the similarities and differences. The pages here are like cardboard: thick and blottery. No T of C, index, or pagination. Thirty-three fables. Rountree's work is typically very lively. Four colored full-page inserts: the lion and the fox, the horse and rider (and stag), the cat and the fox, and the lion and the tiger with their tails tied. I do not know to what fable the latter belongs! There are some fine scenes in the black-and-whites. The cock kicks away not just a jewel but a whole necklace! The tortoise who wants to fly smokes a pipe, even when he is falling. The repeating capitals are nice, especially the guitar-playing pig that is O.en_US
