Here is the second printing of Unicorn's 1992 book using Sturrock's illustrations that first appeared in 1988. This second printing differs from the first particularly in its front cover. Now the front cover is the full picture of TH; it had been a composite of five pictures. The back cover still has its composite of five different pictures; it adds a price ($6.95). As I wrote of the first printing, this book makes a curious study in the movement from an original to a cheaper children's book. The sharp acrylics of Sturrock's 1988 edition have lost something here. The thirty fables there have become nineteen here. There is no T of C here. About the illustrator is gone. Other changes have been made: TH appeared as both frontispiece and last illustration in 1988. Here the picture of the dolphin and ape is first frontispiece and then a particular illustration. Text and picture have changed places throughout, and there is a new colored border for the text pages. The dedication has moved to the back. There are new covers and endpapers.
