Wiggin-Smith. The Talking Beasts

Today's free book is The Talking Beasts: A Book of Fable Wisdom by Kate Douglas Wiggin and Nora Archibald Smith, with illustrations by Harold Nelson. For the table of contents, check at the bottom of this post below the image.

The book is available at Project Gutenberg, Internet Archive, and Hathi Trust. You can get a free Kindle ebook from Amazon too!

The illustrations are by Harold Nelson, and I have made a Flickr collection.
