dc.description.abstractI already have several copies of this book, but this copy has a difference. The copy came in an eBay sale of several good recent illustrated fable books at a good price. The difference in this copy comes on its dust jacket. The publisher's retail price of the book has gone from $8.95 to $14.95. I notice that it has gone through several phases to get to that level. I see now that I asked earlier if the book would soon hit $20. As I mentioned there, the book has lively and delightful illustrations, here reproduced vividly. If there is a problem with Bennett's wonderful pictures, it is that the social commentary is so pointed that we lose or miss something as we view them in a different age. Bennett's witty pictures get strong reactions in slide lectures, perhaps partly for sheer visual delight.en_US
