Thornton W. Burgess was an important and influential American conservationist and a prolific author of entertaining children’s stories. For over 50 years, Burgess published numerous popular books on the flora and fauna of the natural world and wrote a regular newspaper column called “Bedtime Stories”. Often affectionately referred to as the “Bedtime Story-Man”, Burgess celebrated his love for the natural world through humorous and educational stories for children in both his books and in his popular column. First published in 1913, “The Adventures of Reddy Fox” is an exciting tale of the naughty little Reddy Fox. When he foolishly steals a hen and is chased by the farmer’s son and Bowser the Hound, Reddy must rely on his wits and the help of Granny Fox and his friends to escape a dangerous fate. Burgess had a special ability to combine an educational story about the behaviors, habitats, and characteristics of the creatures of the natural world while also captivating audiences both young and old. This edition includes a biographical afterword and the original illustrations by Harrison Cady.
