Harmless little children's book from Great Grandmother's Era?
Or, evil toned story that mocks a poor Southern born Mule (who speaks like Uncle Remus)?

Written by Arthur Scott Baily in 1923.
Appears to be a First Edition, see photo.
Measures 7" by 5".

Very good condition. Nice binding, no odors.

This book is not illustrated, just the end covers and the title page.

A volume from the Slumber-Town Tales series for Children.
Cloth Bound, 118 pages.

You can tell from the title, "Mistah" instead of "Mr", that this book is full of lots of "aints" and "yah- sahs". I would say Mr. Mule has a politically incorrect dialect by today's standards.
But only Mule speaks that way, the rest of the animals have an educated way of speaking. Imagine! Who knew that Turkey Proudfoot aced his grammar lessons.

I should also mention that there is actually a character named "Jim Crow", but to his credit he hates his name.

You decide.
Whatever your view point, it is an interesting read, from an interesting era of history.
