          Application No. 09/017,618                                                  


               The appellant's invention relates to a "do-it-yourself"                
          storytelling book which allows a parent, child or teacher to                
          create their own storytelling book which is specially adapted               
          to allow the creator to relate a story to another person or                 
          group of persons (specification, p. 1).  A copy of the claims               
          under appeal is set forth in the appendix to the appellant's                
          brief.                                                                      


               The prior art references of record relied upon by the                  
          examiner in rejecting the appealed claims are:                              
          Yerkes                   3,166,342                     Jan. 19,             
          1965                                                                        
          Holson                   3,720,130                     Mar. 13,             
          1973                                                                        
          Kapiloff                 5,102,338                     April 7,             
          1992                                                                        
          Petteway                 5,626,365                     May   6,             
          1997                                                                        



               Claims 1 to 20 stand rejected under 35 U.S.C.  103 as                 
          being unpatentable over Petteway, Holson, Kapiloff and Yerkes.              


               Rather than reiterate the conflicting viewpoints advanced              
          by the examiner and the appellant regarding the above-noted
