Adventures of Reddy Fox

Thornton W. Burgess

Book Overview: 

The Adventures of Reddy Fox is another in the series of children’s stories by conservationist Thornton W. Burgess. In this story, Reddy and Granny Fox must outsmart Farmer Brown’s Boy who is out to get Reddy for stealing his pet chicken. Along the way, Reddy encounters many of the citizens of the Green Meadows and the Green Forest and with him we learn little lessons about life such as: the perils of being a show off; the importance of using all of one’s senses; that it is a fine thing to show sympathy and kindness to others – even our enemies; and that the value of a grandmother’s wisdom is inestimable.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Reddy Fox is getting so puffed up that pretty soon he won't be able to see his own feet," said Peter Rabbit.

"Well, what if he doesn't?" demanded Jimmy Skunk.

Peter looked at Jimmy in disgust:

"He comes to grief, however fleet, Who doesn't watch his flying feet.

"Jimmy Skunk, if you didn't have that little bag of scent that everybody is afraid of, you would be a lot more careful where you step," replied Peter. "If Reddy doesn't watch out, someday he'll step right into a trap."

Jimmy Skunk chuckled. "I wish he would!" said he.

Now when Farmer Brown's boy heard about the boldness of Reddy Fox, he shut his mouth tight in a way that was unpleasant to see and reached for his gun. "I can't afford to raise chickens to feed foxes!" said he. Then he whistled for Bowser the Hound, and together they started out. It wasn't long before Bowser found Reddy's tracks.

"Bow, wow, wow, wow!" roared Bowser the Houn. . . Read More

الرواية أو القصص القصيرة تتحدث عن ريدي فوكس، ثعلب صغير يتعلم أصول الثعلبه من جدته الحكيمة.
ريدي ثعلب لعاب، مزعج ويحب المقالب والتظاهر وإثارة إعجاب الآخرين بحركاته الخطرة التي تعود عليه بمواقف لايحسد عليها في الغابة.

Let us compare "The Adventures of Reddy Fox" against "The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel", and let me show you why the former, this book, is just an ordinarily decent children's book, whereas the latter is truly a delightful masterpiece.

Great story

My 4 year old loved this book. Kept asking for more and more chapters. Nice short chapters to keep a little boy happy

Both kids loved this story. There are a ton of characters, but the main ones are developed and fun to get to know. The lessons were simple, so the kids could see them. But they were not dumbed down or silly. Just great, classic literature, which teaches moral lessons and allows the reader to fall...more

A sloppily written, but mostly inoffensive children's story in the vein of The Complete Tales of Uncle Remus and Beatrix Potter. Anthropomorphized woodland animals behave in stereotypical ways, and get into scrapes that are presented without any tension whatsoever. Burgess doesn't even try to exp...more

الثعلب ريدي يتلقى دروس حياة الثعالب تحت اشراف جدته الحكيمة.
الدرس الأول عبور الجسر، ثم الهروب من الكلاب،
وبعدها يُصاب بطلق ناريّ من بندقية ولا يستطيع المشي.
هذا الثعلب الوسيم كما قيّمه نقار الخشب مغرور ومزعج.

قصة جميلة من أدب الأطفال، أستغرب أنها ليست مشهورة فهي مليئة بالكثير من الدروس والعِبر التي يستفيد منها الصغار والكبار على حدٍ سواء.

Cute children's book with good lessons to learn :]

my mother read this book to my brother, sisters and me when we were little. she did such a great job with the animals' voices that I never could get into reading it on my own. I just finished reading this to my class of 3rd graders, who loved it and asked if there were more books like it. And I g...more
