Beautiful Illustrations and Wonderful Stories,
By A Customer
This review is from: Beatrix Potter: The Complete Tales (Hardcover)
Beatrix Potter wrote wonderful stories for children! All of the books do have a subtle moral- which is good, imho. Disobedient children are punished in some books- but this does not mean they are dark stories. Her stories are so full of light, the children are not oppressed (in one story a young bunny is spanked- this is only because he went somewhere he'd been told not to b/c his life would be endangered). All of her characters are full of life and love- and so many stories portray great imaginative fun. Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle is especially fun.
These books are true English classics- full of love for life and imagination.
