Who Is the Beast?
  Picture
Publisher: 1990
New with no dust jacket Voyager Books Paperback 0.1 x 11 x 8.4 Inches; Unpaginated pages; A tiger hears all the animals warning each other about the beast who is near -- the beast who has a swinging tail, yellow and black stripes, strong legs, green eyes, and long, white whiskers. He wonders who this beast everyone is so afraid of might be. He looks into the pool and sees his reflection, and is puzzled. "Who is the beast? Who can it be? I see no beast. I just see me." He then compares himself to the other animals and is able to find some other animal who shares one of each of the characteristics that inspired the fear of him. He comes to the conclusion that they are all beasts.

I am not quite sure what the author is saying in this book. He might be saying that we don't see ourselves as others see us. And he might be saying that at the core we all share the same characteristics and shouldn't be prejudiced or afraid of each other. Or he may not have been trying to make any profound point at all. You'll need to decide for yourself.

The art work, in my opinion, is what makes the book. The pictures of the animals and the jungle are bold and bright and will be sure to capture the attention of young children. With only one line of large print per page, beginning readers will be encouraged to read this for themselves -- especially if they've heard it read to them a few times.; ISBN: 0152001220

New; New book. May have light shelf wear from display. Dover Paperback Dover Children's Thrift Classics; 8vo; 80 pages; Written by a naturalist, these exciting stories show animals interacting in scientifically accurate ways as to natural enemies, type of home, foods eaten, habits, and special characteristics. But on another level, these animals, shown in black and white sketches dressed in human clothes interact as people would, with character traits and emotions. His stories give children an opportunity to observe the consequences of greed, selfishness, teasing, boasting, and other undesirable qualities as the animals interact. In case the children might miss these insights about character and consequences, Burgess often points them out in the text, either in verses or as he develops the plot, inviting readers to anticipate what might happen. He uses his stories to teach moral values. I first read this book when I was six years old. And I learned that toads have beautiful eyes and marvelously efficient tongues for catching flies. I also learned that toads are beautiful singers. And I have never forgotten these things after 50+ years. That's what a great story teller Burgess is.; ISBN: 0486403858

Six-Dinner Sid

Near Fine with no dust jacket; New book with light edge wear from being on display. Aladdin Later Printing Paperback Oblong 12mo 7" - 7˝; Unpaginated pages; Sid is one smart cat. He's got six different families who think they own him -- all on the same block. He got a different dinner from each one every day and no one got wise to Sid's duplicity because none of the neighbors ever talked to each other. All that changed, however, when Sid caught a nasty cough, and all six "owners" took Sid to the same vet, where he was given six different doses of medicine. After seeing the same cat six times in a day, he got suspicious, checked his address book and called all of Sid's owners. They finally did talk to each other, and they decided Sid would only get one dinner a day from then on. But Sid was a six-dinner cat. And he found a way to solve his problem without anyone being unhappy. No cat lover should miss this book. The pictures are wonderful!; ISBN: 0671796135

Otherwise in very good condition with only light wear to edges and corners. Some pages have spots from use Harper and Row Later Printing Hardcover Ex-Library; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 92 pages; .Felice wanted a little puppy she could cuddle, but since the apartment was small, her parents said she'd have to wait until they moved into a house. After all, they already had two very charming cats, Clownie and Pussums. But Felice wanted that little puppy, and when the family did move into their new country home with a big yard, her parents finally took her to the animal shelter where she expected to pick out a puppy like her neighbors, the Purdy children had done. Unfortunately for Felice, her mother fell in love with a large Alaskan Malamute. By the time Felice had found the puppy she wanted, it was too late. Her parents had already decided on the dog that seemed as huge and frightening to Felice as a wolf. About the only input Felice had was to name him -- Frosty. Throughout the rest of the book, Felice, her parents, the cats, and the neighbors learn to adjust to Frosty. Felice begins by being afraid of Frosty and cheated of her puppy. By the end of the book, everyone has learned to love Frosty, and it appears Felice will finally get a puppy after all, just not the way she expected to.
