Danny Meadow Mouse learns to laugh, Grandfather Frog gets even, and the Merry Little Breezes have a busy day in the second volume of Thornton Burgess's popular Green Forest series. These heartwarming tales recount the adventures of Peter Rabbit, Reddy Fox, Jimmy Skunk, Hooty the Owl, and other endearing characters. Suffused with gentle humor and embellished by George Kerr's illustrations from the original 1911 edition, the stories offer children enduring lessons about wildlife ecology. This edition includes a new Foreword by John Richmond of the Thornton W. Burgess Society.
