The story of little Epaminondas who, no matter how he tried, always did everything wrong.


by ecduncan (WorldCat user on 2008-08-10)

Liner Notes: POOR Epaminondas -- he tried so hard to do the right thing, but he always took the wrong time to do it. Whenever Epaminondas went to visit his Auntie, she gave him something to take home, but he always carried it the wrong way. When the sun melted the butter Auntie gave him, Epaminondas's mother told him how to keep it cool. Then Auntie gave him a puppy, and what do you suppose Epaminondas did? The wrong thing, you may be sure. And if you think Epaminondas ever changed, you must read this story. Lavishly illustrated in color by Inez Hogan
