About the Book

The adventures of Mr. Mocker is written by Thornton W. Burgess. To bring joy and gladness to the Green Meadows and the Green Forest, the Laughing Brook, and the Smiling Pool, Mistress Spring begins from far to the South. Winsome Bluebird goes just a little way ahead of her, for he is the herald of Mistress Spring. When all the other little people in feathers had flown to that faraway country, then did this friend of Ol' Mistah Buzzard make up his mind that he would go too. He didn't say anything about it to anyone, but he just started off by himself. Uncle Billy Possum and Mr. Mocker had a moonlight party in the Green Forest. When they heard about it, they became anxious to see the stranger with the wonderful voice. Peter Rabbit followed him around just to hear him fool others by making his voice sound like theirs. When he learned that some people believed Mr. Mocker had not obtained his voice honestly, Ol' Mistah Buzzard chuckled.
