"One spoonful of Calumet, the World's Greatest Baking Powder, does the work of two spoonfuls of many other brands. Sales 2 1/2 Times those of any other brand." The title page is green and shows the boy has a basket in the upper right-hand corner. A dog is chasing a butterfly in the lower left-hand corner. The next to last page advertises "The Children's Party Book." 82 pages.
