Beatrix Potter

It may not be possible to see Beatrix Potter with a fresh eye (nobody actually reads her; we all somehow only reread her). But, when you get a chance, take another look at the prose and drawings in, say, The Tale of Two Bad Mice, one of the weirdest things ever allowed into print. --Joseph Bottum, Children’s Books, Lost and Found, First Things, December 2008
