Work, work all the night

While the stars are shining bright;

Work, work all the day --

I've got no time to play!

Everyone is curious! Farmer Brown's boy cannot figure it out. Then Peter Rabbit and Jerry Muskrat set their minds to the problem and try to wrestle it to the ground. What is happening in the peaceful meadow where the stream flowed so quietly before -- and what does Paddy Beaver have to do with it?

Thornton W. Burgess, famous for his tales of "the lesser folk in fur and feathers," first entertained young readers in the 1910s . . . and his books have kept doing so, decade after decade, down to the present day.

Thornton W. Burgess wrote over 170 children's books, many of which tell the stories of the little creatures who lived in the Green Forest and Green Meadows near the Laughing Book and Shining Pool, including the adventures of Bobby Raccoon, Buster Bear, Chatterer the Red Squirrel, Danny Meadow Mouse, Grandfather Frog, Jerry Muskrat, Jimmy Skunk, Jonny Chuck, Peter Cottontail, Poor Mrs. Quack, Ricckly Porky, Reddy Fox, Mrs. Peter Rabbit, Old Mother West Wind, and Blacky the Crow. When I read this story about Paddy the Beaver, in which he creatures of the Green Forest get a big surprise when Paddy the Beaver decides to build a dam over the Laughing Brook and make a new home, aloud to our younger son Jeremy when he was small, there was a sense of "deja vu," so it is possible that I may have read some of these as a child myself. In addition to including a lot of useful information about the animals themselves and about conservation, Burgess uses the plot to impart bits of wisdom about being kind to others, the importance of hard work, the need to make proper preparation, and other good lessons for life. I really liked this book.
