The Story of Mrs. Tubbs (1923)-- A tiny tale, apparently written for a younger audience than that targeted by the Dolittle books, Mrs. Tubbs resembles those better-known books in that it, too, is a story of animal-human friendship. And it's a simple story: evicted from her home, the little old lady of the title is cared for and finally saved by the dog, duck, and pig to whom she has always shown kindness. Illustrated by Lofting.
