A great vintage re-print from Purple House Press. Love the illustrations and the little slice of life it offers kids. Very sweet, gently moral little tale.
This is the first book I remember choosing for myself at the library. It was on the flat shelves by the fireplace, and I was at the library with my dad. We read it over and over and over. It's a delightful book about the consequences of folly. The illustrations have staying power, too.
