Featherland | George Manville Fenn

Featherland was written for the amusement of two little girls who were fond of leaning up against his knee, and asking him to tell them a story. Fenn was a very good naturalist who enjoyed looking out at the birds on the lawn, and seeing their reactions to one another. From this he has gone on to add occasional snatches of English speech, to illustrate to the girls the way the birds, and a few other animals were behaving in each other's presence.

On the whole, Featherland and the language is an easy read, and suitable for young children.
