This small (4-1/2 x 4-1/8") early offering by Holiday House is a delightful tall tale that reads like a cross between Bannerman's Little Black Sambo (though without the overtly racist content) and the Victorian story of The Tiger and the Tub. When an Indian village is threatened by a huge python, Percival helps effect an ingenious capture with the help of two goats and a hole in the wall. In Fine condition.
