A sulky lad happens across a sitting-stone that unexpectedly grants his wish to become a meadow-mouse. In this wise woodland fable, Tommy experiences life from the point of view of several forest creatures, including a bird, a mink, and a humble toad. In the course of his adventures, Tommy learns that the life of "lesser folk of fur and feathers" isn't quite what he imagined it to be. This heartwarming century-old tale by master storyteller Thornton Burgess features the original edition's charming Harrison Cady illustrations.
