The Happy Hunter

By Roger Duvoisin (Illustrator)

One fine day, Mr. Bobbin dons his hunting outfit and heads into the forest. Fully equipped and ready, he's forgotten one thing--that he's a hunter, as well as a vegetarian, who cannot hunt because of his great love of animals. Curiously, this is a true story. When first published in 1961, the real happy hunter had been "hunting" for 25 years.

Roger Duvoisin was born in Switzerland and came to the US in 1925. He wrote and illustrated forty books, and illustrated over 100 more by other authors. He received the Caldecott Medal in 1947 for White Snow, Bright Snow and a Caldecott Honor in 1966 for Hide and Seek Fog.

"First published in 1961, this endearing picture book for 3- to 8-year-olds doesn't read as any sort of pacifist (or vegetarian) morality tale but rather as an amiable appreciation of the texture and beauty of the world." -- Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal
