The Adventures of Danny Meadow Mouse

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, Mar 24, 1993 - Juvenile Fiction - 80 pages
A plump little meadow mouse is always an inviting target for hungry hunters in the Green Meadows. This certainly should give Danny Meadow mouse enough cause for concern; but lately, he's been worrying about his short tail. In fact, he wants so much to have a different tail that he almost forgets to take care of the one he has. Danny spends much of his time avoiding the likes of Hooty the Owl, who drifts effortessly above him in the open air; Reddy Fox and old Granny Fox, who stalk him as he races through snow tunnels; Mr. Blacksnake, who silently slithers after him through the grass; and other pesky predators. Youngsters will enjoy listening and reading to the adventures of the plucky vole and his friends as they explore Farmer Brown's orchard, the Old Briar- patch and the enchanting world of the Green Meadows.
