Father Thrift and His Animal Friends

Father Thrift and His Animal Friends

Ethel C. Brill

Children's

This is a fascinating story about Father Thrift and his animals. “As from the days your father’s father knew, This little story book now comes to you. So when you turn its pages, heed them well: Though strange the stories, many truths they tell. They tell of animals and birds and trees, Of children, flowers, and honeybees; Of a queer old man, and a quaint old town, With crooked streets that ran up and down.” This edition of the book is amply illustrated. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this timeless story book.

However, our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades.
