I find increasing difficulty in placing certain types of picture books, where the appeal of the pictures might catch the five and six year old, where the captions, even read aloud and interpreted, are distinctly nine and ten year old, and where the underlying significance is almost adult. Here is another. I've put it here, because the pictures tell a story by themselves. But have your customers look through it before they buy, so as to see for themselves where they feel it fits. The spreads take up two thirds of each page; there is humor and good artistry in the lithographic drawings. There is a basic understanding of the small town of the mid west. And the story of how Lentil, who learned to play a harmonion because he couldn't sing and could not whistle, and who saved the town thereby when its leading citizen came home, is a friendly, characteristic tale.
