Description
 
The book starts with a brief overview of the series stating: "Mother McGrew gave many sharp lessons to our animal friends, and these stories and pictures tell  how it happened to them and why! ... each [story] impresses a fact about good manners." This particular book tells the story of Cordelia Clam, and how whenever she felt like it she would refused to speak and instead pout, and what Mother McGrew did to teach her a lesson. It is written by Alice Crew Gall, with whimsical and beautifully colored illustrations by Lee Wright Stanley. The book has missing surface litho on the spine, as well as an inscription by a previous owner on the front cover. The pages are lightly toned due to age.
