2-0 out of 5 stars Thornton's Talking Critters
Burgess was the model for talking animal stories.His characters use good English, are modeled on real behavior of the beast in question, and there is a minimal plotline.Mostly written for what is now about a first to third grade level, the stories are a good 'read aloud' for pre-schoolers as well.Move on from these to Wind in the Willows (Grahame), Wainscot Weasel, or Brian Jacques' Redwall series. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Old and Sweet
Thorton Burgess wrote an entire series of Mother West Wind stories close to a hundred years ago.All are about animals and their adventures in Green Forest----Prickly Porky the Porcupine joins a number of others from previous books like Reddy Fox, Peter Rabbit,and Happy Jack Squirrel. Even though this is a continuation of other books, the stories can stand alone.

These were the bedtime stories my mother read to me in the 1940's; they are sweet, anthromorpic, and child appropriate.They are written simply enough so that children who have just learned to read may also enjoy them.I have purchased new copies of several to give as gifts to my 90-year-old mother who enjoys reading them to her great grandchildren.The older children also enjoy reading the stories by themselves.

5-0 out of 5 stars Animal Friends
I love this book! I'm amazed no one has reviewed it yet! I've had this book since I was a child in the 70's. It has always remained in my mind, the stories of Mother West Wind's Animal Friends. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Mischievous Unc' Billy Possum
A tale of mischief and life lessons, The Adventures of Unc' Billy Possum, is a well crafted children's book of the highest type of quality that one could only come to expect from Thornton Burgess. In this particular book on the animals of the Green Meadows and Green Forest areas, we are treated to the exploits of Billy Possum, a smart witted, sometimes lazy egg lover who stops at nothing to get into Farmer Brown's chicken house and steal his eggs. During the course of this little venture, Billy Possum and the readers learn of how it easy it is to get into trouble, but then how difficult it can be to get out of it; as Billy ends up getting trapped in the chicken house one day and can't make it out for quite some time. Young readers are also taught a little information about possums in general, such as how they will sometimes play dead when confronted with danger. Lessons like this about nature are all too familiar in Burgess' books, and this particular one is no exception.

My daughter loves this book. I read it to her at bedtime. The book has short 3-4 page chapters in easy to read type that make for good nightly installments. She also likes the illustrations which I think are very descriptive and important to have in a children's book that speaks to audiences so young. I think that any child can get into this book in one way or the other, whether it's read to them, or read by themselves if they are old enough.

Darien Summers, author of The Mischievous Hare, a children's book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Adventures of Unc' Billy Possom

1-0 out of 5 stars Tales from a s-l-o-w-e-r era
I bought this to listen to in the car with our children. It sounds like it is being read by aliens who learned English from ancient radio broadcasts, and who are speaking extra slowly to avoid making any mistakes. The diction is archaic, too: "Who would be herald to mistress Spring?" This may be good for putting your children to sleep, but it had my wife begging me to throw it out the car window. My eight-year old claims he likes it, though.

5-0 out of 5 stars great childrens stories with a message
These animal stories are read to keep the younger child interested, readby some very good readers and the music is very calming and would make great bedtime stories. Even the small child will listen to these very cuteanimal stories with a message.

5-0 out of 5 stars AudioFile Magazine: Wonderful, gentle stories for children.
Reading character parts, McDaniel, Sussman and Miller retell four of Burgess's stories featuring Peter Rabbit in his quest to find out why animals are so different from one another. The number of readers per storyvaries from two to three, adding vocal variety to the set. These gentletales are performed in equally gentle tones, with mild excitement andsubtle surprise. The younger sounding male voice adds enthusiasm and energyto the story while the older one brings a "grandfather's" tone ofmaturity. Sussman's female voice helps separate parts and adds a balance tothe two male voices. P.A.J. ... Read more
