You can well imagine Kep's weary frustration when he returned to the barn after chasing the fox. His paws were sore and one ear had been ripped open when he tried to quarry Reynard under a thorn bush. But before he went off to have a bit of a lie-down and recover himself, he knelt down to peer under the feedbox in the barn to make sure that Jemima was safe.
Susan Wittig Albert's book titled The Tale of Hawthorn House (fourth in the series), is a delight from start to finish. Beatrix's Potter's stories have enchanted readers for a century. Now, fans young and old can enjoy Albert's Cottage Tale Mysteries, starring Miss Potter herself.
Although having Hill Top Farm to run, Beatrix and her animal friends are left pondering the possibility of fairy folk involvement in some utterly puzzling happenings...... For amateur detectives, this is delightful. Blessings..... Dee Dee
