Thornton W. Burgess' _Mother West Wind's Children_ (1911) was his third published book and his sequel to _Old Mother West Wind_ (1910). In these two books, he introduced many of his recurring characters: Reddy Fox, Bowser the Hound, Danny Meadow Mouse, Peter Rabbit, Billy Mink, Grandfather Frog, Mrs. Redwing, Sammy Jay, Bobby Coon, Little Joe Otter-- and, of course, Old Mother West Wind and her sack full of Merry Little Breezes. Some characters like Buster Bear and Paddy the Beaver would be introduced later (and would cause a bit of disruption to the woods). But if you start with these two Mother West Wind books, you will have a pretty good feel for Burgess' cast of characters.

There are a total of fifteen stories in _Mother West Wind's Children_. Many of the tales are variations of what Pierre Grimalle once called "prayer myths"-- that is, stories explaining how certain things in nature came to be. That is, "why" stories. We can readily see this in the titles of five tales: "Danny Meadow Mouse Learns Why His Tail Is Short," "Why Reddy Fox Has No Friends," "Why Peter Rabbit's Ears Are Long," "Why Bobby Coon Washes His Food," and "Why Hooty the Owl Does Not Play on the Green Meadows".

Three stories do not have "why" in the title. But they are the same kind of story, right enough: "Striped Chipmunk's Pockets," "Mr. Toad's Old Suit," and "The Disappointed Bush". Most (but not all) of these tales are told by Grandfather Frog. With a bit of coaxing, and for a quota of a few foolish, fat, green flies he will begin: "Once upon a time, when the world was very young..."

The remainder of the tales bear titles like "Reddy Fox Disobeys," "Johnny Chuck's Secret," and "Danny Meadow Mouse Learns to Laugh". They are curious mixtures of morality tales and light comedies. In the first, Reddy Fox just _has_ to bark at Old Mother Moon-- and runs afoul of Bowser the Hound. In the second, Johnny Chuck tells his secret to just one animal-- but it was one animal too many. In the third, Danny Meadow Mouse changes from a crybaby to a laugher. I'm sure we can all agree that this is all a change for the better.

These stories have (inevitably) an old-fashioned flavor to them. But they are still worthwhile tales for all that. Young children should find them appealing. I suspect some adults will like them also.

Thornton Burgess is one of my family's favorite children's authors. We much prefer Mother West Wind's stories to Brer Rabbit and Uncle Remus. Burggess' style of writing is soothing and lulling, wonderful for bedtime or to calm an agitated or over-stimulated child. I read all of these over and over to my five kids who found them fascinating glimpses into the lives of animals. I would find myself sinking into a slow drawl, with just a touch of twang,as we followed the doings of Bobby Coon, Grandfather Frog and and the Merry Little Breezes.Especially delightful for city children who haven't much exposure to rural life.

The stories are delightful. This particular edition of the book itself is poor. The print is very small, making it difficult to read. And it has no illustrations. That's surprising and, to me, unacceptable for this genre of book.

I loved them as a 6 year old so fun to read them at 73'
.. I was the kind of kid that was down a the little river in our town watching the animals come and take a drink or wash their food.as a kid I thought Sick and Jane books lame back then YOU'd say stupid. These delightful stories you should get the interest Little Joe Otter was my favourite his mishaps with REDDY Fox.we're enchanting

Another fantastic book of stories from Thornton Burgess. As with any of these books, Mother West WINDS Children it a book that is suitable for all ages to read. It is also a book that can be read to children. I Wish there was more books like these. The characters and stories are unforgettable. Thornton is a genius when it comes to entertaining readers.

Great five minute stories that I remember reading as a kid and now I can start reading them to my daughter. Simple and easy to understand, many of the stories teach lessons about morals, instead of mindless blather. I am enjoying reading through the series again.
