THE PIG BROTHER AND OTHER FABLES AND STORIES A SUPPLEMENTARY READER FOR THE FOURTH SCHOOL YEAR BY LAURA E. RICHARDS
AUTHOR OF "THE GOLDEN WINDOWS," "THE SILVER CROWN," "IN MY NURSERY," "THE JOYOUS STORY OF TOTO," ETC., ETC.
ILLUSTRATED
There was once a child who was untidy. He left his books on the floor, and his muddy shoes on the table; he put his fingers in the jam-pots, and spilled ink on his best pinafore; there was really no end to his untidiness.
One day the Tidy Angel came into his nursery.
"This will never do!" said the Angel. "This is really shocking. You must go out and stay with your brother while I set things to rights here."
"I have no brother!" said the child.
"Yes, you have!" said the Angel. "You may not know him, but he will know you. Go out in the garden and watch for him, and he will soon come."
"I don't know what you mean!" said the child; but he went out into the garden and waited.
Presently a squirrel came along, whisking his tail.
"Are you my brother?" asked the child.
The squirrel looked him over carefully.
"Well, I should hope not!" he said. "My fur is neat and smooth, my nest is handsomely made, and in perfect order, and my young ones are properly brought up. Why do you insult me by asking such a question?"
He whisked off, and the child waited.
Presently a wren came hopping by.
"Are you my brother?" asked the child.
