Abstract
Through an oversight, I now bought a third copy of this book, replicating copies from 2012 and 2016. This new printing shows several changes. Bendon seems to have taken over Age of Learning. The book is now printed in China. Page numbers have shifted by four. What was on 12 there is on 8 here. As in the 2016 printing, four pages are added at the end of the book, but now two of them are tips on managing space and time, while two still handle vowel sounds. There is no longer mention of recycled paper. As I wrote of the first edition, the book is aimed at younger children. In this version, the caught mouse is the last of a group that scrambled over the lion on the way home. This lion pities the mouse. There is neither laughter nor an offer by the mouse to do something in return. This version is careful to place the trap that catches the lion near the mouse's home. The most expressive piece of art shows the panic of the mouse just pounced upon by the lion's paw (8-9). The mouse's gnawing work is also well depicted (16-17). There are also two pages of glossary at the back of this very sturdy book.
