21005 The Seashore Noisy Book by Brown.

The Seashore Noisy Book.

Little Muffin hears everything, but he had never heard the sea. Adventures follow. "'Ho! Ho!' said the captain as he pulled Muffin out of the water. 'I think I've caught a dogfish this time.' Weisgard's bright angular illustrations of the curious sea creatures go right along with Muffin's inquisitive nature.

19823 The Dog That Wanted to Whistle by Levy.

The Dog That Wanted to Whistle.

Chancho's parents were a Boxer and a Mastiff, and he is an odd combination of the two. His poor master is so sad when the crops fail and Chancho wants desperately to help out. Perhaps if he could whistle? He finds a tin whistle in the grass but swallows it accidentally and Pablo is so frightened of the sound his dog makes, he bolts the door against him. (happy ending though) Such an ugly and appealing dog, and the illustrations are just right.

20179 AnimalLandontheAir by Frees, photos.

Animal Land on the Air.

A series of very short intertwined stories, bringing radio, motorcars, and planes into Animal Land, and beginning with A Young Matron, thinking sadly of her husband, Archingback Stripes, reported missing in action in World War I, we presume. Frees has written an interesting preface on animal photography: most suitable are kittens from six to ten weeks of age, as their attention is caught by sight, while a puppy's is distracted by sound. [White 745]

20359 Bobtail Puppy Book by Cecil Aldin.

The Bobtail Puppy Book.

An introduction by the Puppy reveals his unease about his docked tail. In the following 11 "chapters", The Lambkin Laughs, The Cat Laughs, all his friends tease him, too. Each "chapter" contains a half title with a drawing, opening to a coloured painting of Puppy and his friend in greys, reds, dark browns, and yellow ochres, with black outlines on grey paper, the puppy's poem facing. In the last chapter, the Bob-Tail Puppy decides to solve the teasing by sitting down. Wonderful illustrations of this funny grey and white puppy, frequently reproduced. Due to the complexities of publishing imprints, Henry Frowde's children's books became Humphrey Milford's in the late teens, so this is a later printing rather than a reprint house printing. Heavy, original dimensions, with very nice colour quality. A scarce Aldin Puppy title.
