20359 Bobtail Puppy Book by Cecil Aldin.

The Bobtail Puppy Book.

An introduction by the Puppy reveals his unease about his docked tail. In the following 11 "chapters", The Lambkin Laughs, The Cat Laughs, all his friends tease him, too. Each "chapter" contains a half title with a drawing, opening to a coloured painting of Puppy and his friend in greys, reds, dark browns, and yellow ochres, with black outlines on grey paper, the puppy's poem facing. In the last chapter, the Bob-Tail Puppy decides to solve the teasing by sitting down. Wonderful illustrations of this funny grey and white puppy, frequently reproduced. Due to the complexities of publishing imprints, Henry Frowde's children's books became Humphrey Milford's in the late teens, so this is a later printing rather than a reprint house printing. Heavy, original dimensions, with very nice colour quality. A scarce Aldin Puppy title.
