Sq. 8vo.  pp. Illus. American color printed cover showing a mother holding a ribbon which is used as a swing for her little daughter's doll â€“ dressed in Victorian costumes; the back cover featuring two colorfully drawn children in 'adult' costume (the boy in blue with a coat too large and holding a cane). Very good. The book is both well-illustrated in black & white and it offers a wide array of stories including a version of the Gingerbread man. Others: "Dot, the dentist' (Dot is a monkey); Dode's School-Days (she is a little black girl who holds a sweeping broom and a big smile â€“ and she would like to go to school â€“ clearly commenting on social status); "Hoo-dle-dum"; "The His-tory of Nan-cy Lee" â€“ a cat; "Mac and his do-ings" â€“ Mac is a dog; "Dolly's mistake"; "The naughty kangaroo"; and "The wonderful gingerbread man." Several cute 'slate drawings' are printed for children to copy.
