First edition of this rare and charming narrative of London Zoo animals banding together to put on a pantomime of CINDERELLA.
Very good plus.
CINDERELLA AT THE ZOO
"And only fancy what I heard,/ 'Twas told me by a little bird,/ One Boxing night at Christmas time/ They all performed a Pantomime."
The casting choices of this pantomime play, directed by one Mr. E. Lephant, are both hilarious and fitting: a sweet gazelle as CINDERELLA, a charming brown bear as the prince, an an abrasive llama as the evil stepmother, among other lively humanized animals. A lovely book in collectable condition.
