Welcome to the timeless world of the Green Forest, the Laughing Brook and the Smiling Pool. Here young readers will meet a menagerie of funny and fascinating animal friends-Peter Cottontail, Jimmy Skunk, Reddy Fox, Grandfather Frog and many more-and learn about their exciting adventures. In this beloved classic, the first in a series of highly popular animal tales by Thornton W. Burgess, children discover the answers to such questions as why Grandfather Frog has no tail and why Jimmy Skunk wears stripes. There's also great fun to be had in reading or hearing about the grand goings-on at Billy Mink's swimming party, Little Joe Otter's slippery slide and Reddy Fox's unfortunate fishing expedition. These and many other exciting adventures are told here in a warm, whimsical way that combines gentle lessons about wildlife and the environment with the fun of a good story.
