A charming story book with pictures, internally fine with clean text. Pere Caster recommends a red (or pink), blue, yellow, and brown crayon to "finish" the book, but this has yet to be done. Wear on binding causing covers to begin to separate. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Artists and Writers Guild, Poughkeepsie, NY, 1935. PB. Book Condition: very good++, wraps (softcover). color illustrations (illustrator). 20pp Designed by Pere Castor, whose real name is Paul Faucher and who is interested in modern methods of education. This "is not a paint book or an ordinary drawing book. In this book you do not have to copy designs; you only have to finish the incomplete pictures, and color them with crayons." Obviously an early activity book, and some of the lines for the incomplete pictures have been filled in, but so well that I did not even realize it at first. No other color has been done, just some well done lines where they should be. Bookseller Inventory # 046118
