Thornton W. Burgess was an important and influential American conservationist and a prolific author of charming and witty 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 1918, “The Adventures of Bobby Coon” finds the young raccoon constantly in trouble and on the run in the forest. Chased by Farmer Brown’s son and Prickly Porky the porcupine, it seems like Bobby Coon can never find any peace and quiet. Fortunately, he is soon rescued by his good friend Peter Cottontail, who helps him to find a new home. 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.
