Old Mother West Wind (Paperback)

Thornton Waldo Burgess (January 14, 1874 – June 5, 1965) was a conservationist and author of children’s stories. He loved the beauty of nature and its living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years. By the time he retired, he had written more than 170 books. Many of his outdoor observations in nature were used as plots for his stories. In his rst book, “Old Moth- er West Wind,” published in 1910, the reader meets many of the characters found in later books and stories. These characters in- clude Peter Rabbit, Jimmy Skunk, Sammy Jay, Bobby Raccoon, Joe Otter, Grandfather Frog, Billy Mink, Jerry Muskrat, Spotty the Turtle and of course, Old Mother West Wind and her Merry Little Breezes. Note to parents of very small children: in Chapter 15, lit- tle Tommy Trout gets eaten by a pickerel.

“I’m so glad I found these adorable stories! My kids (and I) love them! They’re the perfect length for when you only have time for one, but it still leaves your kids satis ed. The language is perfect, not dummed down (like some other kids’ books), a little old fashioned (consider the time they were written), but still understandable. I got them on Kindle for free, which is an added bonus, and will be reading all his other stories when we’re done with ‘Old Mother West Wind.’” Amazon Customer
