There is a new arrival in the Green Meadow and Green Forest and everyone is scared! Peter Rabbit and all the other little creatures are afraid to stick the noses out of their little homes for fear of that circling stranger far above. Is he a relative of fierce Mr. Goshawk? After meeting this stranger, Peter begins to wonder just where he keeps his nest, and everyone he asks is just as puzzled. So Peter decides to find that hidden nest! * * * * Young readers travel to the timeless world of the Green Forest and Smiling Pool. Gentle lessons about nature, the environment, and the “lesser folk of fur and feathers” for today’s young readers and listeners. * * * * Originally published in 1919, “The Adventures of Ol’ Mistah Buzzard” is part of the rich heritage of children’s nature books left to us by Thornton W. Burgess in his long running — and much beloved — series of children’s nature books about the Green Meadow and the Green Forest.. * * * * This book is the twentieth in Thornton Burgess’s “Bed-Time Storybook” series. Any imaginative child will be captivated by this book. The chapters are short, with simple language that children will identify with, and is printed in easy-to-read 14-point type.
