Abstract
Here is the latest version of a book that is already in this collection in its 2012 and 2016 versions. (For some reason, its previous copyrights are 2012 and 2015). What has changed? The book is now published by Bendon and printed in China. While it is the same height (9¼”), it is slightly wider (7¼”). It contains the two pages of vowel sounds added in the latest printing. Pagination is more careful: the title-page is now 5, not 9, and the cover is not Page 1. The biggest changes may have come out of the pandemic. It is now in the series “Early Learning Academy” and includes at the finish “At-Home Learning Tips.” I have found LM in the same series online and suspect that the other three books in the series may be published soon. This edition makes no mention of recycled paper or online apps. As I wrote earlier, in this version, the boy tries his trick again the next day and another time a few days later. The story is traditional. The author pauses to teach readers that they should never yell for help when they do not need it. Two illustrations stand out. The first confronts a reader on the first page: the boy laughs deliriously pounding his fist on the ground. The illustrator enjoys drawing lines of motion for an action like that of the boy's arm as he pounds the ground. This first illustration turns out to be a detail from the larger two-page spread on 8-9. The other dramatic illustration follows immediately: a large, toothy black wolf terrorizes the boy and the herd (10-11). The wolf carries multiple sheep in each arm as he moves off triumphant and unopposed. There are two pages of glossary at the back of this very sturdy book.
