Notes: There is no copy of this book in any library in the U.K. This book is dated 1921 from an inscription reported in another copy. My copy is dated 1924. The line drawing on page 61 of this book is signed 'Blam' but the original drawing in Two Little Scamps and a Puppy is not signed, showing that Nelson's edited the pictures.
