LIFE and ADVENTURES
MR. PIG and MISS CRANE.
EMBELLISHED WITH DESIGNS.
Young Master Pig you here may see
Upon his tender Mother's knee
No longer he with patience sucks
For See, he's cutting both his tusks.
Behold him now in Go Cart safely tied
His pretty feet go trotting side by side
Old Granny smiles and grunting seems to say
"Ce petit prodige c'est moi qui l'ai fait."
To Master Goat next Pig is sent
Whose learning is most ex...

Have you ever seen a LadyBug and wondered what the cute little bug with the dots on her back was thinking? And why she seemed in such a rush? Well here is your chance to peek into her thoughts and enjoy some of her daily triumphs and disasters. "Little Mrs. Ladybug was a worker. Nobody could deny that. To be sure, she had to stop now and then to talk to her neighbors, because Mrs. Ladybug dearly loved a bit of gossip. At the same time there wasn't anyone in Pleasant Valley that helped Farmer Green more than she did. She tried her hardest to keep the trees in the orchard free from insects. Some...

I suppose you have all seen a Hare, and perhaps many of you have helped to eat one. The Hare is a very timid animal, running away on the least alarm; but, poor fellow, he is too often caught by the dogs and killed, notwithstanding his swift running. It is rather difficult to tame Hares, but there is a very amusing account of three, named Puss, Tiney, and Bess, written by the poet Cowper, who kept them for some time, an...
In the Wilds of Florida, by W.H.G. Kingston.
In this book by Kingston we are introduced to Florida in the mid 19th
century, when the tail end of the wars between the Cherokee and Seminole
Indians was still rumbling on, and the white man was still occasionally
disturbed by attacks by Indians.
Large areas of the territory are swamp, water, and densely overgrown
plains. All this is described in detail.
Our hero this time is a "school leaver" from Ireland, whose father seems
to have ha...

A Frog he would a wooing go,

Bunyip Bluegum the koala sets out on his travels taking only a walking stick. At about lunchtime, feeling more than slightly peckish, he meets Bill Barnacle the sailor and Sam Sawnoff the penguin who are eating a pudding. The pudding is a magic one which, no matter how much you eat it, always reforms into a whole pudding again. He is called Albert, has thin arms and legs and is a bad-tempered, ill-mannered so-and-so into the bargain. His only pleasure is being eaten. The book is divided into four "slices" instead of chapters. (Introduction by Wikipedia)
We are weary of witnessing the greed, selfishness and cruelty of “civilized” man toward the wild creatures of the earth. We are sick of tales of slaughter and pictures of carnage. It is time for a sweeping Reformation; and that is precisely what we now demand. -William Temple Hornaday
