    1. Quick review from memory until I re read and re review at a later date Adorable, presumably I think I need to evaluate Potter s writing style closer than I have done in the past.


    2. Beatrix Potter s as lovely as always I don t know what it is about her style of writing that just makes you want to read on forever The simplicity The rather silly characters The gorgeous illustrations ooh and are those oh so pretty Bottom line is, buy a book and read it to your children They ll thank you when they grow up.
