I liked this book third best because the book is about
the mystery of the mocking bird and now I am going to tell you
what I mean. Well the story is about two little green forest
people and a mocking bird. And near the end of the book it
becomes about all of the little people in the green forest and
the green meadows. And if you want to know, those two little
green forest people are Sammy Jay and Sticky Toes the tree toad,
who people say were talking in the night when they were really
sound asleep. But soon everyone found out it was the Mocking
Bird that was making all the noise in the night. And at the
end they had a little party and everything turned out fine.

I'd love to know what book "Super Tim" read, as nowhere in this book did ANYONE say "Wow, there goes Mr. Mocky". In fact, this is a very good book which we've had for about 2 weeks and my 4 year old has had me read repeatedly. We cover about 3 chapters a night at bedtime. It teaches that playing tricks on your friends is NOT the way to keep them, and can actually cause people a lot of trouble. I highly recommend it - along with all of the other Thornton Burgess books!

This is a wonderful book and I highly recommend it. Plus, unlike many of these Dover editions of Thornton Burgess' books, it has honest-to-god original Harrison Cady illustrations.

Harrison Cady did two sets of drawings for this title:
-- Published by Little, Brown, with 6 full-page grayscale illustrations.
-- Published by Grosset & Dunlap, with 14 full-page line drawings, including line-drawing versions of all 6 original grayscale illustrations in the Little, Brown editions, plus many smaller line drawings.

This Dover edition has the 6 grayscale illustrations from the Little, Brown edition. In the Little, Brown edition, they were on plates (higher quality paper), while in this Dover edition they are on the same paper as the text. That does affect the quality of the illustrations a bit, but they still look quite good. Kudos to Dover on getting it right for this title. And at such a low price!

If you like these illustrations, I'd recommend finding a used copy of the Grosset & Dunlap edition too. Cady did those decades later, after he had grown as an artist. Even though the Grosset & Dunlap line drawings are simpler than the Little, Brown grayscale illustrations, they are more charming. On the other hand, the Little, Brown grayscale illustrations better show Cady's remarkable vision for Burgess' creatures.

I read all of Thornton W. Burgess when I was a child. I loved them. I just reread them all again. Ideal books for children. Teaches lessons about every day living as well as all kinds of facts about animals.
