The Tale of Peter Mink

by Arthur Scott Bailey

Description:  Peter Mink is a sly fellow who doesn’t do a lick of work if he can help it, and instead devises all sorts of ingenious means to avoid honest labor. His wary neighbors must exercise vigilance in order not to be taken advantage of by him. Peter gets himself in trouble, however, when he takes up a collection for a poor neighborhood orphan, creates a coat and hat checking service for a village concert, and bargains for the left hind foot of a rabbit and all that comes with it.
