Publisher's Description

This new edition of the classic story introduces young readers to Thornton W. Burgess’ irresistible cast of animal friends in his timeless collection of Bedtime Stories.

Newly updated with original cover art, this freshly printed edition of The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel invites a new audience to read about the antics of our eponymous, furry, hero as the little mischief-maker escapes Shadow the Weasel and Redtail the Hawk. As with all Burgess’ charming tales, young readers will learn important lessons about curiosity, carelessness, and mistrust as well as true-to-life behaviors of our favorite woodland animals.

In addition to the beautiful, color illustrations of Maddie Frost, this edition of The Adventures of Catterer the Red Squirrel features the original black-and-white artwork by Harrison Cady. These are the very same illustrations you would find in the first edition of the Bedtime Stories, combining the vintage feel of these classic stories with modern sensibilities. 

Author Bio

Thornton Waldo Burgess, a devoted naturalist and conservationist, knew that instilling a love of the natural world in young people was one of the best ways to inspire conservation in adults. His writings spanned over fifty years, more than 170 books and 15,000 articles, and inspired several generations.

Many of Burgess' observations of nature were featured in his stories, and his many characters, including Peter Rabbit, Jimmy Skunk, Sammy Jay, Bobby Raccoon, Joe Otter, Grandfather Frog, and many others, displayed both animal and human traits that were very recognizable to readers.

The Boston Museum of Science awarded Burgess a special gold medal for "leading children down the path to the wide wonderful world of the outdoors."

Burgess lived in Massachusetts. Learn more about Thornton Burgess at thorntonburgess.org.
