Dover Children's Thrift Classics
This affordable series features dozens of classic stories and poems for children ages 8 and up. Most feature the complete text but some have been adapted for young readers.
Bowser the Hound
Author and conservationist Thornton Burgess (1874–1965) wrote thousands of animal stories for children, starting with the 1910 publication of Old Mother West Wind.
Young readers and nature lovers of all ages will love this appealing story of exciting animal life in the Green Forest.

Some of the Dover reprints of Thornton Burgess books have original Harrison Cady drawings, but many are crude redrawings by other artists. The ones by Theo Kliros are not too bad, but the ones by Pat Stewart are disappointing.
To get real Harrison Cady illustrations, you'll have to buy a used book. There were two sets of original Harrison Cady illustrations for this title:
-- Published by Little, Brown, with 8 full-page color illustrations.
-- Published by Grosset & Dunlap, with 4 full-page B&W illustratins.
The B&W redrawings in this Dover edition are of 6 of the 8 Little, Brown color illustrations.
On the other hand, the cover illustration is by Cady; it's the cover illustration for the Little, Brown first edition. However, the colors are much more saturated compared to the original, which obscures some detail.
I'd recommend the Little, Brown edition. A good place to find one is AbeBooks dot com.
If you're looking for old editions, the library binding version of the Grosset & Dunlap edition was titled "The Adventures of Bowser the Hound" (instead of just "Bowser the Hound").
