Notes: A chapter book illustrated by Jo Mora (credited on the title page as Joseph J. Mora) and Sue M. Sealy. Mora's contributions are small black-and-white in-text vignettes of animals and a few small duo-tone (orange and black) chapter headings. Sealy designed the cover and six full-page, two-color illustrations.
126 pages. 5-1/2 by 7-1/2 inches.
Edition + Condition: First edition (no later printings noted; with the cover image of a fox holding hands with two cubs, later changed to a rooster, a pig, and a leopard; and a blue-cloth binding, which was later changed to green). Quite scarce as a first printing. This is a very good copy, with minor shelfwear to the spine ends. A small piece of the upper outer corner of pages 27/28 is missing, not affecting any text. Lacking the dust jacket.
Publication: Chicago: Albert Whitman Company, 1923.
