Scarce first book in a scarce series. The little hero is naughty, has a new fishing basket, plays with Rollicky Rabbit, meets a mouse, has a barrel of Ginger Pop, encounters Black Rascal, meets snakes, and finishes up with Porky-legs and Sassingers. An important example of the depiction of Africans in British children's literature and how those depictions propagated racial stereotypes.
