The Adventures of Mr. Mocker


In which Mr. Mocker the Mocking-bird makes a place for himself in the Green Forest, despite rumors that he did not come by his magnificent voice honestly!
Something strange is going on in the Green Forest! Sticky-toes the Tree Toad is hearing his voice coming from another tree, yet he hasn’t said anything! Everyone is complaining that Sammy Jay is keeping them awake at night calling “Thief! thief!” yet he says he was asleep! And Unc’ Billy Possum is sure he has heard an old friend of his from the South, yet can’t find him. * * * * 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 1914, “The Adventures of Mr. Mocker” 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 fifth 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. Read aloud to pre-readers, or read by children themselves, this book will surely be a family favorite in no time. This edition includes the original four Harrison Cady illustrations.
