Beatrix Potter's classic tales!

My esteemed colleague Aleshia had the happy idea of ordering a whole pile of Beatrix Potter's classic animal tales, still available in the pocket-sized editions of my childhood. The trials and tribulations of of Peter Rabbit, his cousin Benjamin Rabbit, the unfortunate Jemima Puddleduck, the mischievous Tom Kitten, among others, are endlessly readable, especially when accompanied by Potter's excellent watercolours.

Behold, a few specimens!

In which Benjamin Bunny boldly helps Peter Rabbit steal back into Mr. McGregor's garden in order to get his clothing back.

In which naughty Tom Kitten ignores the advice of his mother, gets his good clothes dirty in the garden, and gives them away to some ducks.

In which Samuel Whiskers, a large rat, and his wife Anna-Maria, seek to make a tasty pudding out of none other thanTom Kitten!
In which Two Bad Mice named Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca raid the dolls' house, only to find that all the food is made of plaster.
