A Joke on Cinder by Romney Gay

I found a charming 1944 children's book at the church book sale. A Joke on Cinder by Romney Gay, published by Grosset & Dunlop, Inc. was "designed and produced by Artists and Writers Guild, Inc."

The book had belonged to Suellen O'Dell And William. O'Dell was my mother-in-law's maiden name, an interesting coincidence.

 















I think the joke was on the children as well!
