A beloved storyteller takes young readers - and listeners - to the Green Forest to recount the adventures of Peter Cottontail, Mrs. Quack, Jimmy Skunk, Danny Meadow Mouse, and other woodland friends.

These stories are exclusive to this edition and are unavailable in any other Burgess collection.

A favorite listen, again and again

Any additional comments?

I was looking for a collection of bedtime stories for the nights when my children are restless, and when I saw the name "Thornton Burgess", I knew I'd found a treasure. We've been listening to this collection for over a year now and the stories have become dear friends. I highly recommend this and all of Burgess' works for children.

Short and Sweet

Not as good as the longer stories, but fun none the less. Purchase on sale only.

Fun Stories to Share with Kids

i chose to listen to this story because my kids regularly listen to it at bedtime, and talk about it, and I had no idea what they were taking about.

now i have finished listening to it, I love it!
and look forward to joining in thier discussion about the bedtime stories.

The best audible purchase I’ve ever made

My kids love this book. They’ve listened to it all the way through at least a dozen times and they keep asking for it. Ideal age range: 3-8. A really nice, well performed collection. Please more Thornton Burgess at this high standard. His stories are so wonderful!

Pretty useless

Not sure how this item has all the positive reviews -definitely fooled me. Stories are very short and mostly pointless. Performance is ok, but content-wise it was really not worth even the few dollars it cost.
