What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The Adventures of Buster Bear introduces a new generation of children to Thornton W. Burgess’s long-beloved Bedtime Stories characters. Buster Bear is new to the Green Forest and because he is so big (and his appetite is also so big), he’s having some trouble making new friends. But there are always interesting stories about meeting the new folks in the neighborhood. Is a nice fat trout a good present for a new friend? Can someone as big as Buster be afraid of Farmer Brown’s boy? How can a little tin pail cause any trouble? Children have laughed at the antics and adventures of the residents of the Green Meadows for five generations. And while laughing they’re learning something about the natural world, and maybe something about themselves. A dedicated naturalist, Burgess imbues his stories with the good humor, imagination, and fun animal antics that all children will enjoy reading during story time. These essential childhood classic stories also feature the original black-and-white illustrations by Harrison Cady, lending this edition a vintage feel.
