A 1962 Garth Williams classic, now in print for the first time as a Little Golden Book!

“The pig has a tail with a curl and a bend. A snake is all tail with a head on one end. . . .”

Long tails, fluffy tails, swishy tails, stubby tails—this witty poem about all the types of tails in the animal kingdom is perfect for curious preschoolers. With gorgeous paintings of friendly critters by Garth Williams, this book is a perfect blend of whimsy and fact.
