This picture book was among the first titles printed by McLoughlin Brothers cofounder John McLoughlin, Jr. after he finished his apprenticeship and set up shop on his own as a printer of children’s picture books and valentines.  This book has neatly hand colored illustrations, and reflects McLoughlin’s early practice of putting color on every page.   

Adopted by Mariana S. Oller in honor of Roger E. Stoddard
