The No-Sort-of-Animal.

Yet another boring small animal identity crisis book? Think again. A mildly irritated lion mentor finally tells the little animal that he needs a tail... He's a dog! He plays with the other dogs! "For you know there are many, many dogs who would be no-sort-of-animals if they didn't happen to have tails." The spare, well designed, and very funny pictures carry the story all on brown, white and tan pages, by Abner Graboff, an illustrator who should be better known.

CONDITION: Very Good Plus without jacket; no names, very clean, must have just lost its jacket, straight, tight, unwrinkled pages; slight bumps and rubs to bottom corners and spine; two pages with tiny (1/16") corner creases. Item #21338

Price: $85.00
