You know Peter and Bob Whiteare great friends. They are very near neighbors. They are such nearneighbors and such good friends that if it popped into Peter's funnylittle head to be curious about Bob White's affairs, he wouldn'thesitate an instant to ask Bob about them. When old mr. gopher first got pockets. THERE was one of Peter Rabbit's neighbors of whose presence he wasalways aware, and yet whom he almost never saw.

My husband & his siblings were raised with Mr. Burgess's books. His sister found several very old copies which we treasure. We have spent several hundred dollars on many of his books which we have given to both our grandchildren & friends with grandchildren. The books are so well written, not to mention also quite accurate, but are so much fun for even adults to read. My husband & I enjoy a chapter over coffee each morning of one of Mr.Burgess's books. The latest is "The Burgess Seashore Book for Children". Danny Meadow Mouse is the "star" of this volume. We love them all, but "Blacky the Crow" will always be our favorite. We sincerely hope that other parents & grandparents will purchased these books for their offspring. Please do not get us wrong, we still enjoy Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Wiley coyote & the Roadrunner,& of course, Mickey Mouse!
Great stories for children and maybe not so young folks too. Lots of good teaching in these stories.
First read this book as a child over 65 years ago when I read my father's childhood book. Loved it then and love the fact that the kindle version had all the original illustrations which enhance the stories. Perfect book to be read to your young grandchildren!
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.
i enjoyed these so much when I was a child and was so happy when I found that copy for my great-grandchild.
Love these stories with good moral content in a delightful outdoor world.
