WILD AND TAME ANIMALS by Dahlov Ipcar
Released: March 8, 1963

In the inimitable Ipcar fashion, this teaches the young reader that long ago the ancestors of his very own pets ran wild in the forests. It also takes him on a tour of the mountains, deserts and jungles where the llama, camel and elephant — animals he knows from the zoo and circus — are trained to work for man. Despite the superb illustrations in dramatic hues of rust and gold, the book is uneven as a whole. The second half offers considerably more information than the repetitive text in the beginning.

THE LITTLE FISHERMAN by Dahlov Ipcar
FICTION
Released: Sept. 25, 1945

A very attractive book in four colors about a big fisherman and a little fisherman both of whom lled boats. Delightful text which tells what these fishermen do and how they do it. Little sailors with little ropes, little buckets and little hammocks will appeal to children from first picture book age on to six or seven. Playfully drawn details of the sea and the creatures that swim under the shadowy ledges and among the rocks are fascinating and carefully accurate, and will mean more to the upper level age group who will like the text read aloud. Pictures by Dhlov Ipcar, in four-color-unusual coloring-large clear type- paper over board binding. Read full book review >
