Thornton W. Burgess was a conservationist and prolific author of children's books. His gently humorous stories about the animals of the meadows and woods teach little lessons about getting along with others; they are perfect bedtime stories for small children. (Summary by Laurie Anne Walden)
Published January 24th 1917 by Amereon Limited (first published 1917)

My 7 yr old gave these books a 5. I agree. "His books are awesome' she says.I liked the way morals were told in an entertaining way. I bet my daughter didn't feel she was being moralized at because she wanted to hear the whole book. I've tried others that had a distinct 'moral' or 'value' and she hates it.(Books that go ... is thankful or ... learns to be honest. blah.

Burgess books are interesting entertaining and a good read. Hopefully the little lessons learned by the animals were also learned

The 1941 copy I have was my mother's when she was a child.
A bit unimaginative, even as children's books go. Most of the stories go something like "old Mr. Bat discovered he needed wings, so Mother Nature gave him wings".

One of my favorite childhood books.
