Tales from Bernard Shaw.

Tales from Bernard Shaw.

London: George G. Harrap & Co Ltd., 1929.

Phyllis A. Trery.

First edition. The author has taken the dramatic works of Bernard Shaw and retold them in a jungle context, replacing the human characters with animals: an endearing if somewhat eccentric book brilliantly illustrated by Phyllis A. Trery.

'The Wizard was wise – but he knew nothing.
The Wizard was kind – but he cared nothing.
The Wizard did good – but he did nothing.
He was just himself.'.
