The gentle, old-fashioned animal stories of Thornton W. Burgess, told with great warmth and charm, draw young readers into the timeless world of the creatures who live in the Green Forest and around the Smiling Pool.
In this engaging episode, Bobby Raccoon suffers a series of mishaps. Following a bad dream, he bites his own tail, is given a dreadful fright, survives an encounter with Buster Bear, gets a terrible shaking and more, but, happily, is rescued by Peter Rabbit and eventually finds a new home.
Reset in easy-to-read type and enhanced with six new illustrations adapted from originals by Harrison Cady, The Adventures of Bobby Raccoon will delight today's young readers while offering gentle lessons about nature and wildlife.
