There is already a copy of this book in the collection under the same date. This copy has two differences. Its cover material and design has remained the same, but the color of the cover has changed from red to black-and-orange. The front of the dust-jacket has added for Boys and Girls from 8-13 and the front flap has added From Eight to Thirteen to For Boys and Girls. Perhaps publishers just cannot leave books alone, or perhaps they cannot get all their best ideas into a hurried first printing. As I wrote about the other copy, one finds here fifteen Aesopic fables in a special section. Good black-and-white illustration of a broken bridge and the fallen donkey (169); other illustrations are of LM and WC. These illustrations are a throwback to an earlier style.
