Carrot and stick

Posted by Bob Van Meter on May 26, 2005

The carrot and stick phrase first became known to me in a childrens book called "Jim, Jock & Jumbo" which my Mom gave me in 1948. Jim or Jock a turtle pictured pulling a wagon, as I recall, with a carrot just in front of him dangling from a stick. This created a perpetual motion turtle.

Is there another who remembers this book?
