Here is an extra copy -- with dust-jacket -- of the hardbound version of this work. Michie's poetry seems sprightly. Grandville's illustrations really are a treasure-house. Unfortunately, they are not very well rendered here and are rather small. The quality of printing of the illustrations seems to vary from one copy to another. Grandville does a good job of dressing animals up, and often suggests in the picture the social point.
