KIRKUS REVIEW

It starts off like The Thief in the Attic (Kurt Wiese, 1965, p. 573, J-187), using a single decayed tree trunk as the location for a small wildlife survey. This one doesn't offer any story, though, just a parade of the local animals that come by the stump, where a family of mice are trying to sleep. The book is by the author/illustrator of Collect, Print and Paint from Nature, (1963) and it shows off a lot of his handsome, softly colored watercolors of forest scenes, but nothing more.
