A Kitten that Forgot how to Ask for Food – Illustrated by Haim Hanft -Warsaw, 1922

Tale – a kitten that forgot how to ask for food, written by Benzion Raskin [according to Palmir], illustrated by Haim Hanft. Warsaw, Poland: "Tarbut", 1922.
Story about a kitten who played with dogs until she became hungry. [8] Leaves, 25.5X20.5 cm. Good condition. Stains, creases and tears at borders of cover.
"Haim Hanft…was a weird artist. Like Lissitzky, he was trying to achieve an abstraction of animals' shapes through a non-continuous line and through minimal use of colors. The animals have human eyes, sometimes smiling and sometimes cross-eyed, however the kitten, in spite of her human face and in spite of being cross-eyes is so strange and poor, that a child cannot identify with her". (From: Ayala Gordon, Jewish Illustrations – the Jewish Illustrated Book for Children, Tel-Aviv, [2005]. P. 84).
