Baggage Book CoverThis lively rhyme with bright, avant-garde illustrations tells of a lady who gets on the train with a suitcase, a hatbox, a couch, a painting, a package, a pouch, and a cute little pooch.  During the journey, an enormous shaggy dog is substituted for the pooch.  When the astonished woman claims her baggage, she is told that her dog grew up on the trip.  This is a reproduction in size and layout of the Russian book, which was first published in 1926 to mold the minds of the children of the revolution.  The original Russian text is included. mjw
