The Adventures of Grandfather Frog

In this time-honored classic, Thornton W. Burgess mixes exciting adventure and good-natured humor with gentle homily to spin a wholesome tale of animal characters that children have found irresistible for generations.
Lightfoot the Deer
Autumn should have been a season of contentment for the inhabitants of the Green Forest. Food was plentiful and all the young creatures born earlier in the year had been taught how to look out for themselves. It should not have been a sad time, but it was because of the hunters and their long guns! Lightfoot the Deer was especially concerned. "There's nothing quite so terrible as being continually hunted," he thought. The handsome creature certainly had cause to worry, as young readers soon learn in this exciting and sensitively written tale by naturalist Thornton W. Burgess. With the opening of hunting season, Lightfoot finds himself pursued by a determined two-legged predator with a deadly weapon; and even with the help of his friends Sammy Jay, Paddy the Beaver, and -unexpectedly- a concerned human, Lightfoot faces constant threats to his survival.
Mrs. Peter Rabbit
Something is definitely wrong with Peter Rabbit... he has no appetite! Deciding he is terribly lonely, Peter sets off to visit some friends in the Old Pasture but instead finds himself narrowly escaping the clutches of Hooty Owl, experiencing a nasty encounter with Jed Thumper (a big gray rabbit) and eventually staring right into the soft, gentle eyes of Miss Fuzzytail. Before you know it, Peter has a new bride!
The Adventures of Paddy the Beaver
As this delightful story opens, something strange is going on! The waters of the Laughing Brook and Smiling Pool have become a mere trickle, causing alarm among the creatures of the Green Forest. It seems Jerry Muskrat's cousin, Paddy the Beaver, has come South to make himself a new home. That means he had to stop the waters that flowed in the Laughing Brook and Smiling Pool to make a fine new pond for himself and a comfortable home of sticks and mud. But what will happen to the waterways in the Green Forest?
The Adventures of Prickly Porky
There's a big mystery brewing among the animals of the Green Forest-and it's all because of a strange little creature with no head, legs or tail that came rolling down a hill and gave Peter Cottontail the fright of his life. What could it be?
The Adventures of Unc Billy Possum
When Unc' Billy Possum learns how easy it is to get into trouble, it takes some doin' to get himself out of his predicament. First of all, he didn't go home when he should have. The next thing he knew, he was a prisoner! But with the help of his friends, especially Happy Jack Squirrel, Unc' manages to find a way out of his difficult situation.
