An ordinary cookie guide, once handed out for free, now sitting by the hundreds in antique stores, waiting for someone to rescue it. Someone might remember this from their own childhood, long elaspsed. Someone might use the illustration on the back as art for a thesis statement on the domestic oppression of women and children in the immediate post-war era, because there is no joy in Mudville and there can never be any joy in Mudville. Someone might be transfixed by the front cover illustration, which doesn't seem to make any sense at all. Is that a window? It has shutters. Is the child presenting the container as a tribute? Is he taking it down? Yes, he is taking it down, and transporting it to where mother and sister labor. Did the dog just defecate in excitement? No, that is the boy's shoe.
