Ilis charming fables rival those of the world famed .Esop, and he far outshines that celebrated literary cornet by his inimitable illustrations. He dresses up his birds, animáis, insects, giants, fairies, goblins. etc, in grotesque style and makes them reason, talk, dance, and cut up all sorts of the oddest pranks imaginsble, affording infinite delight, as well as excelient instruction to the young. ïhe issue of his book " Queer People" has brought a perfect ovation of praise from the brightest men in the land.
