A peasant walked a great distance to the city. Famished, he buys and wolfs down a roll of bread; still starved, famished, he buys and eats two more; and still hungry, buys and eats a doughnut. Satiated at last, the fellow upbraids himsellf lacking sensibilities to buy just a doughnut in the first place! Hence the title of this collection of vivid, humorous, earthy tales (some didatic), riddles, poems gathered from all over old Russia. Pen-and-ink illustrations from Anita Lobel. Fine ex-library copy.
