I loved these books as a kid! I still read them when I go home to visit. Thornton W. Burgess immerses you in the Green Forest, the Green Meadows, and the Old Pasture with Reddy Fox, Prickly Porky, Jimmy Skunk and other characters.
At $4, why not try Prickly Porky and ask us about other books in the series.
An engrossing story of a woman from the rural countryside of China, and the head of household she works for in Shanghai.

A book you won't forget for some time.

Those aren't all that Livy used to love...and can't remember. There is also the tiny ... creature... in the chicken suit in the closet -- Livy could not remember him, but he remembered her.

A fun read, aimed at the 8-12 age group.
