Twinkly Eyes at Valley Farm, by Allen Chaffee (1885 - 1985)

Volunteers outside the USA: Allen Chaffee died in 1985. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 50 years; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
Twinkly Eyes, the yearling bear cub, finds himself in a trap after visiting the Sugar Camp once too often. However, the boy from the Valley Farm takes him home and they develop a bond with the boy even playing the harmonica for him. But cubs will be cubs, and this little black bear just can't seem to help himself as he manages to get into all kinds of trouble! In his various adventures he meets Unk Wunk the Porcupine, Bobby Lynx, Frisky Fox, Whoo- Whoo the Owl, Mother Black Bear and her new cubs, a Traveling Showman’s dancing bear, and Chet-woof, the cross old bear from a neighboring range. Of course this little adventurous guy is going to learn many lessons along the way. What do you suppose will be the most important of all? (Summary by Laurie Banza)

Put out a PM to someone who was interested in DPL, hasn’t picked up mail yet - so still waiting confirmation. I think it could be the Holiday season?? :hmm:

Yes, that would be my guess, especially if this person is a very regular member. I'm not in a hurry, we can wait for as long as we need to. Feel free to record and upload!

I am here! Thanks for the opportunity. I was off hunting deer... Or rather, watching squirrels and birds, since there were no deer. I will be happy to DPL. I will be catching up on Paddy, hopefully today!

Watching squirrels and birds 😆 That’s awesome! Well, this little story is going to take you back to the forest! There is no deer here either!
PS….welcome back and thank you for DPL’ing this project!
