Appearing as the first major monotone illustration plate within Lathrop's The Fairy Circus (1931), this image is

associated with the following text:


They could hardly wait for the fairies to build the cages of pine twigs before

they dashed behind the bars, where they showed their teeth and growled

fiercely. For squirrels can growl. And, when some of them had made

themselves lion manes by wrapping their tails around their necks as they

would go, no one could ask for better lions.
