Notes

First edition. Intended to please her American readers, the main animal characters in the book are indigenous to North America: grey squirrels, chipmunks, and a "large bear". The inclusion of yellowhammers (Emberiza citrinella, the birds which sing "Little bita bread and-nocheese!") was a mistake, as their range includes Europe and much of Asia but not America. The first two impressions are indistinguishable.
