H HIS tale of wonder is told for children;
with which view, it has been carefully
Designed and very nicely printed.
For some time past, it has arrived at the dignity of a
popular Nursery Tale in the Author's family; and it is
hoped it will merit the same good fortune elsewhere.
It will be worth while explaining, that the circle in
each page is made to represent some object in connection
with the story; and, that as some of them have proved
rather puzzling, to Juvenile admirers has been left the
task of finding them out."


London, I859.

Before you could count ONE, Two,

E S, bit by a dog,
But not dead as a log,
As you 'll gladly find;
For she climbed up the apple-tree before
you could count ONE, Two, THREE,
and left the dog behind.

ONE, Two, THREE, a great many times,
while she hobbles across the room on her

Is it true then, as they said,
That poor old Puss is dead,
So many lives as she 'd got ?



































E S, the song has all been said,
And poor old Puss is dead,
Let it never be forgot;
Although not ONE, Two, THREE, but
NINE LIVEs she had got.
