This book was
published in both board covers (50 cents) and ooze calf ($1.00). The
board cover volumes have been seen with two covers that have the same
illustration but slightly different coloring. The ooze calf book
originally came within a labeled box.
I believe that the board book that has the yellow shutters is the
one but I have no absolute proof. Both board books have identical text
in 126 pages and are 5.25 x 4.
