Baby Jack & Jumping Jack Rabbit

"All day long Baby Jack ran in and out and around the Mesquite thicket. There were so many noises to listen to; so many strange things to smell and so much to see. You and I would have thought it a very dull place. But that is because we could not see and hear with the eyes and ears of a little jack rabbit."

Join Baby Jack and his sister, Jumping Jack, in the first book of the Mesaland Series as they explore the desert and encounter other creatures, including a little bee, a grasshopper, and a pile of big red ants. Written by Loyd Tireman, adapted by Evelyn Yrisarri, and beautifully illustrated by Ralph Douglas.

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again, the seven books in the Mesaland Series introduce a new generation of young readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.
