    PREFACE THE following account of some of the commoner birds and beasts around us is written in the hope of interesting boys and girls, and some of the older people too if possible, in the wild life of garden, hedgerow, and field. Scientific language has been avoided, for no facts lose value from being expressed in plain words. I have confined myself to the everyday creatures that may be met with in garden and meadow-the mice, birds, frogs, toads, and other animals that every person comes across-as they are quite as interesting as the more uncommon ones. Indeed from a natural history and scientific point of view there are probably as many, if not more, valuable facts waiting to be discovered concerning the ordinary creatures that we meet with every day than there are concerning animals out in the wilds. We want to know how and why the creatures around us do the v I WILD CREATURES OF GARDEN AND HEDGEROW different things that we see happening daily. We want facts, and the descriptions that are oiven hereinafter are almost entirely the b observations ancl notes made while watching the creatures in question and any value these studies may possess will, I believe, be found due to the fact that they are records at first hand of what has been thus seen and learnt. Four chapters have previously appeared as essays in the Nntioncll Review, to the Editor of which, Mr. L. J . h9assc, I am indebted for kindly allowing them to be republished herein. FRANCES PITT.
