This deluxe edition presents three of the most popular books by a beloved storyteller. Thornton W. Burgess's timeless tales of woodland whimsy recount the exploits of Reddy Fox, Peter Cottontail, and Grandfather Frog. Featuring the original art by Harrison Cady, the stories offer young readers examples of friendship, honesty, forgiveness, and other virtues.

Author and conservationist Thornton W. Burgess (1874-1965) wrote thousands of animal stories for children, starting with the 1910 publication of Old Mother West Wind. Burgess's tales convey his fascination with wildlife and his concern for nature, teaching gentle lessons about ecology and respect for the environment.
Harrison Cady (1877-1970) was a prolific illustrator best known for his association with Burgess' work. He drew a Peter Rabbit comic strip from 1920 to 1948 and provided illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, Ladies' Home Journal, Country Gentleman, Boys' Life, and other publications.
