CONDITION: Good Plus: small name on the front of the card folder which rubbed on corners; spine is split for 2" and is rubbed but functions well and has not been repaired; the panorama is in beautiful shape, some margin foxing on two pages. Toploader small softcover Though this lovely lithographed strip would stand just as decoration, it tells a story as well: First the yellow breast discovers her eggs and nest are missing, then she goes from animal to animal asking about her nest, then the birds and animals converge on the school demanding justice, and Mary Green and Alice Neal sympathize. But "a little boy hung down his head/and went and hid behind the bed/for HE stole that pretty nest/ From poor little yellow breast! And he felt so full of shame/He didn't like to tell his name. No adult moralizing here at all. There were six little books in this series that were also published together in a box as the Christmas Stocking Library.
