Wonderful book


(5 stars)

Another excellent read by Clara Dillingham Pierson in which children (and adults) learn the ways of the forest animals and many little lessons of manners, morality and common sense. we especially enjoyed meeting Jude Somers, one of our favourite readers, halfway through the book
