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.

Easy-to-download MP3 files accompany this book, so kids can read along with the spoken narration, as they simply listen or enjoy the book. Numerous color illustrations, rendered in a charming mid-century style, enhance the tales of Buster Bear's fishing trip, Paddy the Beaver's argument, Reddy Fox's new trick, and Unc' Billy Possum's escape. Adults will delight in sharing this nostalgic storybook with the next generation.
