Frightful's Daughter Meets The Baron Weasel by Jean Craighead George - OPTIONAL

George, Jean Craighead; Frightful's Daughter Meets The Baron Weasel;Dutton Children's Books(a division of Penguin Young Readers)



The life of wild animals is very different from our domesticated pets. In this story, which pulls characters from George's My Side of the Mountain novels, both Baron Weasel and Oksi Falcon have young to take care of and provide food for. The trouble is that young falcon is a delicacy for weasels and Baron Weasel's family is hungry. This story will delight fans of George's previous work, however a casual reader will be put off by the slow story line and dense text.
