When in the world did I mention that? I hope this means your memory is excellent, not that mine is fading.
This was the textbook we used, lo, those many years ago when I took my First Semester Greek at UT-Austin. I noticed a few months ago that a new softcover edition had been released. It is in my opinion quite similar in spirit to Whites' "First Greek Book" here on Textkit: Attic Greek introduced by small grammatical points dribbled out lesson by lesson with a vocabulary and stylistic focus preparing one for Xenophon's Anabasis (Jeff, can we have a "pukey face" emoticon?)
Translation exercises each lesson, and often readings, some Xenophon, some not. The little mottos and phrases and proverbs that head each chapter are a nice touch, I think.
