The Little Friends of Frances Pitt

The Little Friends of Frances Pitt

The little friends of Frances Pitt are the creatures of the countryside, everything from weasels to squirrels to the water shrew. Each episode related a little about the creature in question, beautifully illustrated by well known wildlife artist Harry Pettit.

Pitt (1888-1964, a naturalist well known in the 1950s for his books about country life) signed each week's episode but never appeared himself.
