Box contains the Story of Mowie, Molly's New Neighbos and Billie the Turk.No indication of publication data on the three PAPERBACK books or the box but we have had two of these in hardback. From Molly: Racine, WI: Whitman Publishing Co., Wig Wag Series, (1920), cloudy gray paper boards with the sparrow mother in a mob cap looking at her three nestlings; 4.75x6.5. Boxed books.

A box in the same cloudy gray paper with a large window view of children playing on a window seat, a little bird looking in: Mowie's life in the circus and later with his child friend. Molly's account of the baby sparrows, day by day. Bobby and his uncontrolable monkey Billie who goes off with an organ grinder again in the end. Three of thse simple stories presented in a nice box for bedtime. told in clear, bright watercolor and ink lithos on every other opening. A charming item in an earlier style. The four animal stories by Anna Merrill in the six books of the Wig Wag series are loosely connected, told by Elmer and his sister, cousin. and chum.
