商品説明

Jerry Muskrat had been looking very sharply at the bank on which Little Joe Otter was sitting. “I think Paddy the Beaver has begun work on the dam he warned us about,” said Jerry.


“What makes you think so?” asked Billy Mink. Jerry just pointed to the bank. Everybody looked and they could hardly believe their eyes when they saw a wet line running all the way along the bank which showed that the water was not as high as it had been. They just stared and stared with eyes and mouths wide open, and even while they looked the water dropped ever so little.



Thornton W. Burgess originally wrote the chapters that would become "The Adventures of Paddy the Beaver" for newspaper serialization. They appeared in newspapers November 1st through December 8th, 1913. There were 32 daily installments, Sundays excluded.


When they were published as a book over three years later, in March 1917, ten chapters were removed, probably due to space constraints. This edition is the first time those deleted chapters have been in front of readers since Americans opened their newspapers in the winter of 1913.


The 10 deleted chapters follow the animals as they worry about the effect of Paddy's new pond on the Smiling Pool and learn more about how Paddy builds his house, and finish the subplot about Farmer Brown's Boy discovering Paddy's Pool.


“Thief! thief! thief!” screamed Sammy Jay, hopping up and down, he was so angry. Paddy the Beaver kept right on working, paying no attention to Sammy. This made Sammy more angry than ever. He kept coming nearer and nearer until at last he was in the very tree that Paddy happened to be cutting. Paddy’s eyes twinkled.


Thornton W. Burgess was immensely popular in the 1910s and 1920s, and remained very popular for generations afterward. It isn’t just that his stories are very entertaining. Burgess was also a very knowledgeable naturalist, and almost every chapter describes real wild animal behavior. His books are as educational as they are entertaining.


But wait, there’s more. Burgess’ books also gently convey wonderful little moral and practical lessons. Children love those lessons because of the delightful way the stories are told. If you find that hard to believe, just try reading this book to a child.



It’s a common misconception that since Burgess wrote for children, he was read only by and to children. Not so. His daily newspaper stories were also routinely read by adults for their own pleasure.


This edition has two chapters for parents and other grownups, which detail:
? The restoration of the lost material for this edition, and:
? The history of Burgess' Bedtime Stories.


This edition has 98 illustrations:
? The 6 full-page illustrations made by Harrison Cady for the original 1917 Little, Brown edition.
? The 14 full-page illustrations made by Harrison Cady for the Grosset & Dunlap edition.
? 41 spot illustrations taken from full-page Harrison Cady illustrations.
? 32 Harrison Cady illustrations that appeared with the original newspaper serialization installments in 1913.
? The color illustration from the front cover of the 1917 Little, Brown dust jacket, the illustration from the front cloth board of the same edition, the illustration of the beautiful endpapers of the Grosset & Dunlap edition, and one illustration each in the two bonus chapters.


This restored edition of "The Adventures of Paddy the Beaver" is by far the most illustrated edition ever.


Also includes two bonus chapters:
? “Old Roughleg the Hawk”, an early Burgess Bedtime Story published here for the first time since it appeared in newspapers on Jan. 15th, 1913.
? “Chatterer Tries Some Tricks”, a sample restored chapter from the forthcoming "The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel: With 8 Lost Chapters Restored", published here for the first time since it appeared in newspapers on Dec. 12th, 1913.
