Large and not very impressive pastels. I have at least three different versions of this book, based on criteria of price, dust-jacket back flaps, cover design, and binding. The price of this third version has been clipped off. The back dust-jacket flap of this copy begins with These observations carrying over from the front flap. Two other sections are titled About the editor and About the artist. Its cover material is simple blue cloth, which does not match its dust-jacket: boxes containing each a colored image of an animal head. The binding of this volume is reinforced, probably for use in a school. What had been in other versions the colorful end-papers are moved into the book to become the first and last pages. Now there are blank endpapers next to the covers at both ends. There is a nice listing of morals on 92-3. The morals with the stories are curiously explanatory: People say such-and-such when they mean…. Here is a standard book that it took me a long time to find the first time!
