    The Complete Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem (PitcherBooks)
    PitcherBooks: Both are lovely animal stories with totally endearing artwork. Potter's work is a vintage classic and Barklem's book a recent classic.

The Tale of Jeremy Fisher describes his fishing trip to catch food for dinner. He has invited Sir Isaac, Mr. Alderman, Ptolemy Tortoise to dinner.

A day in the life of a gentleman frog, and the dangers thereof.

I am amazed at how much truth in nature can be worked into a fantasy tale for children using a frog with human characteristics. The mind boggles. The illustrations show many of the creatures in a frogs environment, and the tale indicates predators, diet and habits. Of course, one must be able to sort out the fiction from the truth, but this is not as difficult for children as adults think. ( )

I think I'm concluding that I'm not such a Potter fan (contrary to my memories from childhood), but I appreciated this one for having a little more madcap energy and freaky-weird than most of her books--Mr. Jeremy Fisher is fishin' and it's all oh shit a weird little fish OH SHIT A WEIRD BIG FISH OH SHIT A REEEAAALL BIG FISH AND IT'S TRYNA EAT ME UP! You know? Pikes are weird when you look at them. ( )

Does anybody really enjoy Potter's tales anymore? Read this for free on Project Gutenberg, color pictures and all, here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/15077/15077-h/15077-h.htm. Let me know what you think. ( )

A classic from Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit collection. Mr. Jeremy Fisher, a frog, goes out fishing, and gets more than he bargained for, and comes home without a fish dinner. The story details Mr. Fisher's fishing adventure, and ends with a nice dinner with friends, after all. A good story for any little fisherman or girl. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0723247765, Hardcover)

To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.

The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.
