The Adventures of Johnny Chuck

Thornton W. Burgess

Book Overview: 

The Adventures of Johnny Chuck is another in the long list of children’s books by conservationist Thornton W. Burgess.

Along the way, we learn little lessons about life such as there are good and bad kinds of pride, the importance of keeping secrets and that, even in the animal world, the three most important factors in determining the desirability of property are “location, location, location.”
