Description


Here is Pleasant Fieldmouse, as enchanting a small creature as one might hope to meet. And here, too, are his friends, Mrs. Worry-Wind Hedgehog, Haunted Beaver, Graybeard Tortoise, and many, many others.

Their happy adventures in the forest, whether preparing for a picnic that never takes place, growing a very special and beautiful talking rose, or performing brave and heroic deeds of courage, will enchant the youngest listener.

And who could ask for more than to have these lovable forest folk portrayed by Maurice Sendak, whose pictures are known and loved by thousands of children and adults.
