"I am sorry to say that Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made him some camomile tea; and she gave a dose of it to Peter! 'One table-spoonful to be taken at bedtime.' But Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail had bread and milk and blackberries for supper."
"I remember I use to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense."
These stories are wonderful and quirky and a bit gruesome at times as well! I very much enjoyed reading them as a child and as a parent to my daughter. This complete collection contains twenty-three of Ms. Potter's original stories as well as beautiful illustrations.
