A warning to shopkeeper and purchaser, in the end, and an interesting sort of moral to be taught to children. Still, it's cute, and an okay addition to the Potter collection.
While you can buy Potter stories individually, I have to advocate for getting a complete or near-complete collection of her stories. While this story will entertain most children for one or two readings, it does not shine unless taken in with the rest of Potter's works. And make absolutely sure you get one a collection with the original illustrations of Beatrix Potter herself. Her genius was not just in text, but in her visual storytelling. The watercolor technique in general is quite difficult and unforgiving, but Potter seems to have practiced it with as much ease as if she's gone into a countryside with a modern camera. Crisp and lively, these pictures are true works of art.
Keep in mind, all of Beatrix Potter's works are in the public domain! You can find fairly cheap copies out there, since royalties don't need to be paid to anyone. Just double-check quality before putting your money down.
This book has wonderful illustrations for the kids to enjoy. But I must admit, I don't really quite enjoy this book, and just reading it through to check it out. But of course, I can't speak for others.
