Cool illustrations: The New Human Interest Library (Part 4)

For today's moment with this 1929 book, we have two more Herbert N. Rudeen illustrations. (I'm going through the book from front to back, rather than skipping around, so we'll have a lot of thematically similar posts in a row.)

Both of these amusing drawings feature animals. They came from a section titled "When Georgie Was Hungry (A Table Manners Story)." Georgie, without the help of mind-altering substances, learns An Important Lesson about the proper ways to eat from talking dogs and pigs.

I especially like the illustration with the dogs. It looks a bit like Little Orphan Annie starring in Seems Like Old Times.
