A frog sits in a garden at the base of a white fence, eyeing a bee hovering nearby. The illustration is labeled “Illus. IIB”; it was probably part of a set of illustrations for a children’s book or magazine, perhaps also illustrating a song. Pencil notation lower right, presumably in artist’s hand: Joanne Chapman, Illus. IIB, May 17, ’49
