This book is remarkable because it is one of the earliest books illustrated by Ernest Shepard (of Winnie the Pooh fame). The book is a series of short stories, written by the now famous author of Wind in the Willows. They are all children's stories and are very charming. They were written in Grahams early days, when he was a clerk at the bank. Shepard's illustrations ( he is the famous illustrator of Winnie the Pooh) are wonderful, rich and witty and with the child in mind. The book still has its dustcover, though it has damage along the top and the edges. The cloth cover has the same illustrations as the dust cover and is in good shape, though slightly yellowed. Copyright is 1922. 174 pages.
