The Adventures of Jimmy Skunk (Hardcover)

The Adventures of Jimmy Skunk is another in the long list chil- dren’s books by the conservationist, Thornton W. Burgess. In this book, Jimmy Skunk has encounters with Reddy Fox, Peter Rabbit, Unc’ Billy Possum and other acquaintances of his in the Green Meadows and Green Forest. Along the way, we learn some of the habits of Jimmy and his friends and we learn little lessons about life such as the importance of always keeping one’s temper, keep- ing promises and not playing practical jokes. We are also treated to a philosophical discussion by Jimmy Skunk on the advantages of defensive weaponry.

“I love these animal stories by Thornton Burgess! They are a perfect rst read aloud to small children, and as a well-read parent, I enjoy them my- self.”S. Liebrich

“I bought this book for my 4-year old, with the intention of reading a story from the book at bedtime each night. This girl LOVES skunks, so I was think- ing she would enjoy this. However, she was not so thrilled that there are no pictures and the story did not hold her attention. We’ll try again when shes a bit older.” Monica
