Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a "Kiddie Kut" Book.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, a "Kiddie Kut" Book.

A sought after book of this series, perhaps because of the inside of the dwarfs' neat little house, which is so fascinating with its shelves of provisions, flour bags, ham, and wine, and the shelves of books and the Staffordshire dog and the model ship, and then the barrel stave beds with the quilts and the ruffles and the piece of a motto hanging above each one's bed.  Kind of a perfect Peter and Wendy scenario.
