Thornton W. Burgess was a conservationist and author of children's stories. He loved the beauty of nature and its living creatures so much that he wrote about them for 50 years. By the time he retired, he had written over 170 books and 15,000 stories for a daily newspaper column.
In this book, Burgess chronicles the antics of Chatterer the Red Squirrel, who's known throughout the Green Forest as a troublemaker. After nearly being caught by Shadow the Weasel and Redtail the Hawk, Chatterer decides to leave the forest for a new home. His curiosity and carelessness soon get him into trouble when he is caught by Farmer Brown's boy and becomes his prisoner. He soon realizes that freedom is much more important than anything else and that people are not always what they seem at first.
