4 out of 5 stars
Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s journal entries, this book captures her fascination with animals in a picture letter format. The conversation the author has with the readers is comical at times. The author’s note at the end provides more information about Beatrix’s life and fascinating facts about her writings and illustrations. While the story was enjoyable, the watercolor illustrations of this book felt a little choppy, making it difficult at times to be pulled into the story visually.
