190A: children’s anthology, about 50 or 60 years ago, fiction and nonfiction

Children’s anthology published at least 50 years ago, definitely containing Thurber’s “Many Moons,” a story about Leiningen and the ants, a story about Pompeii, and many many more. I’d like to see what else is in it; those are the three I remember.

  1. This could be the same one I’m looking for…..mine had, I believe, a Laura Ingalls Wilder story in the back; also a wonderful story about a toy maker who was rushing to finish painting his wooden farm animals when there was a blackout. He kept painting and the next day discovered he painted a blue horse, a purple pig, etc. Does this sound familiar?

    • Volume 3 of The World Treasury of Children’s Literature includes Many Moons and an excerpt from Little House in the Big Woods. I haven’t found anything yet that also includes Leiningen Versus the Ants.
