Publisher's Summary

Paddy the Beaver is a newcomer to the Green Forest. The little people of the Green Meadows and the Green Forest are wary of strangers. They don't know what to expect of Paddy, especially when he starts building a dam and the water stops flowing to the Laughing Brook.

Like all of Thornton Burgess' books, Paddy the Beaver leaves listeners with positive morals and values. Especially interesting in this book are the lessons regarding how beavers actually construct and provide for their dams.

Thornton W Burgess was a conservationist and author of children's stories. He loved the beauty of nature and its living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years. By the time he retired, he had written over 170 books and 15,000 stories for a daily newspaper column.
