"Animals -- All the Year Round."
Wood engravings by Agnes Miller Parker and commentary by Bates are in a style similar to that of their collaborations in Through the Woods (1936) and Down the River (1937). Twelve half-page illustrations are accompanied by reflections on animals of the forest as well as farm animals. The commentary roughly follows the seasons, and the final illustration is a calendar for 1943. In The 1943 Saturday Book (London, October 1942, pp. 241-52).
