Story Hour Readers Revised: Book One
Dillon, Alice Christie
Hallock, Ruth Mary
It has taken me some time to find Book One in this series. I had found copies of Book Two and Book Three as early as twenty years ago. There are two fables here, both well told and illustrated. In Billy Goat and the Wolf (16), Billy Goat gets into trouble because he is chasing a butterfly. Both two-color illustrations are signed F.R. and certainly look like the work of Frederic Richardson. TH (54) starts with a torn page and includes three two-color F.R. illustrations. The rabbit here deliberately naps; he wants the turtle to see him as he wins the race. Pages 35-38 are also torn.
