I love all of the Thornton Burgess animal stories, and have since childhood. I read them to my son when he was little, and now am going to be able to share them with my grandchildren. Old Granny Fox was a wise old fox with a lot to teach her impulsive grandson, Reddy. She does so within the context of the real life conditions that Burgess had observed in nature.
And the lessons Reddy Fox and readers learn are never preachy, but taught in a practical, gentle manner.
Adventures Reddy Fox by Thornton Burgess
A child can laugh at the mishaps of Granny and Reddy while learning real life lessons about theft, gratitude for what one has, making do with less than ideal conditions, and kindness to others. I would definitely recommend any of the Burgess books for children from , and for older kids if they still like them. Always cheerful, always fun to read, always with a very gentle approach to teaching life lessons. 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. Those 4 line drawings are crude by Harrison Cady's standards, compared to the line drawings he did for many other Burgess books. This Dover edition has the 4 crude line drawings. But kudos to Dover for getting it basically right for this title. If you like these illustrations, I'd recommend finding a used copy of the Little, Brown edition too -- mostly to get all 8 original drawings, but also to see them in color as Cady originally drew them.
This was such a wonderful read. The author dispenses wisdom to young people in that rare and special way that avoids making it feel like bad medicine going down. Most of his stories, though loosely interconnected, still allow the reader to jump in at any point. Bear in mind, there are presently two versions of this Kindle book on Amazon.
- Publisher Series by cover.
- Texas Monthly On . . .: Texas True Crime.
- The Adventures of Reddy Fox.
- The Stone Garden: Poems from Clare.
- Thornton W. Burgess!
- Sehnsucht unter südlicher Sonne (Romana) (German Edition)?
One of them Old Granny Fox is not completely formatted properly. That one is still a good reading copy, but due to the formatting, excises many of the witty sayings in each chapter. This version is the free one to get, although it also has none of the original illustrations.
There are other copies of Burgess' animal stories with the artwork on Kindle, but none of them appear to be free. Most are only a buck or two, so if you enjoy "Old Granny Fox," you could still find plenty of the illustrated versions of Burgess' writings in Kindle format on the cheap. My kids love Thornton Burgess's books. We have read many books about the creatures in the Green Meadows, Green Forest and the Old orchard over the last year. All the characters come to life and have their good and bad traits, just like people.
