Issuing books as part of a series was a marketing strategy employed by many booksellers.  McLoughlin Brothers created six titles in the Father’s Series including Puss in Boots, and  Valentine & Orson. Tom Tearabout, thestory of a poorly behaved little boy, begins: “I'll tell you about Tom Tearabout, The boy no man could tame; No less than sixteen nurseries, Did tremble at his name.”
