The story of Appleby Capple by
Call Number: NOT IN THE LIBRARY
"His name was Appleby Capple, but they called him Apple for short - an odd name, it is true, not for a fruit but for a boy. This is the story of his search for the rare Zebra butterfly, which he hoped to present to Cousin Clement on his ninety-ninth birthday, and of the many adventures that befell poor Apple when his search led him to become lost in the woods among the wood creatures, some Indians who just happened to be there, and all the birds and beasts that had recently escaped from a nearby zoo. That is the story - but the story provides only a portion of the fun in Miss Parrish's book. It is really a new kind of alphabet-nonsense book, divided into twenty-six chapters, with a fully developed character to represent each letter of the alphabet."--Jacket flap.
