Three sweet children's stories of Muffy, Fluffy, and Puffy Kitten published by Samuel Lowe Co., Kenosha, Wi. in 1941. The three character cat books are illustrated by Margot Voigt.  The die cut books are called stackables, as you notice from the second photo, of how each book lines up with the other.  It is my understanding, also, the three books were tied together so as to remain together.  Well, the thought was good, but didn't always remain as so.  The larger and the middle book consist of eight pages.  Some full color and the others black and white. The smallest book is ten pages with five in color and five in black and white.  The graphics of each of the books is absolutely charming.

Size of the largest book is 5-1/4" wide 11" tall. (would be a bit taller but part of the kitten's ear is gone.) Middle book is 5" wide x 10-1/4" tall.  Smaller book is 4-1/4" wide x 8-3/4"tall.

Condition:  These delightful storybooks, I am sure were repeatedly read so there is damage from little fingers. The large book, Muffy, has lost part of an ear.  A crease to the lower part of front cover.  A small crease to back cover also.  A few surface scratch to the cat's face.  Middle book (Fluffy), some paper loss/ scratches to the face.  Back cover is nice.  Small book (Puffy), a small paper loss to middle of head of the cat. A couple very minor creases on both the front and back covers. 

All pages of all the books are attached to the covers.  Since the ear is torn /loss on the larger book, the inside pages also reflect this tear.  This loss, in no way interferes with any of the graphics of any of the pages.   All three books have reinforcements at the area where the books were tied together.  This reinforcement would not have been original, but help to protect the books. 

For a cat lover, what an amusing set.
