A perennially popular story teller in the fourth volume of an easy-to-sell series (On the Green Meadows. At the Smiling Pool and The Crooked Little Path). More antics of Peter Rabbit, Farmer Brown and his son, and all the feathered and furred folk that Burgess has made famous in drawings and stories. The stories convey a charming intensity and actual tenderness that surmounts the sense of dated manner and occasional moralizing. Peter Rabbit's curiosity gets him into difficulties but results in acquisition of all manner of wonderful nature information. Children will like the bright-eyed, long-eared view of a meadow and pasture.
