(4.8 stars; 138 reviews)

The Adventures of Jimmy Skunk is another in the long list children's books by the conservationist, Thornton W. Burgess. In this book, Jimmy Skunk has encounters with Reddy Fox, Peter Rabbit, Unc’ Billy Possum and other acquaintances of his in the Green Meadows and Green Forest. Along the way, we learn some of the habits of Jimmy and his friends and we learn little lessons about life such as the importance of always keeping one's temper, keeping promises and not playing practical jokes. We are also treated to a philosophical discussion by Jimmy Skunk on the advantages of defensive weaponry. (Summary by John Lieder.) (1 hr 41 min)

A pleasure to listen to

It's often a joy for me to listen to the soft tones of John Lieder's voice, especially whenever he reads one of the works of Thornton W. Burgess. Would positively listen to this as well as others more than once.

My kids and I love this as well as Burgess' other nature/adventure/character stories. We seek out John Leider's recordings when they are available. He provides excellent excellent and distinct voices, warmth, enthusiasm and good pacing. Thank you
