ONE LAST THING TO SHARE with regards to Chinua Achebe's children's books. This article in the Daily Independent from this past January entitled "In Search for Viable Content for Children." The article outlines the history of Nigerian children's literature and postulates on its future. Two of Chinua Achebe's books are mentioned as exemplars of the form.
AND I HAVE POSTED another Richard Erdoes (a.k.a. the illustrator of James Joyce's The Cat And the Devil) book on my Flickr set: What's Inside? (1968) by Barbara Shook Hazen. The cover appears below.
