It is curious that the same book showed up, after years of apparent absence from the market, twice within four months, and in both cases from Australia. Neither copy is in good shape, and so I will keep them both in the collection. The format resembles that of a Little Golden Book: the book is a little larger than 6 x 7½, with stiff board covers stapled together. There are four stories on 28 pages: FC, MM, TT, and The Fox and the Goat. The telling of MM omits mention of dresses and dances; Perrette feels so happy thinking about her future cow and calf capering in the fields that she jumps for joy. So Blyton teaches me something; that is indeed how La Fontaine tells the story! The inside covers present mirror-images of FC. Hachette holds the copyright. Is Hackett a British subsidiary of Hachette?
