Publisher's Summary

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.

Author and conservationist Thornton Burgess (1874-1965) wrote thousands of stories reflecting his fascination with wildlife and concern for nature, teaching generations of children gentle lessons about ecology and respect for the environment. 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.

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.
