A charming little book that I rescued from a used books shelf for two bits. The wordplay in the chapter about Prince Thag's labor is amusing. Thurber's modelling-challenged drawings are part of the package: one gets the impression that he wrote a story around the three animals for which he could render a reasonable likeness. How is it that this volume hasn't been picked up by one of the Thurber anthologies?
