This miniature book presents a fable I had not heard before, beautifully illustrated with thirteen linocuts. Every now and again, a toad opened his mouth and swallowed a little earth. A ladybug asked him why he was so thin. Because I am always hungry. She asked why he did not eat his fill. Because one day even the earth might come to an end. The lettering and animals are delightfully done in red and green. I think I am very lucky to have come upon this book! Rare indeed! I trust that the art and lettering were done by Susan Acker. 26 pages. 2? x 1¾.
