Book Review


Young Beatrix Potter loves animals and has quite the collection. In fact, she has a whole menagerie, the extent of which is likely unknown to her parents. Despite the several that die in her care, Beatrix believes herself capable of caring for any animal. However, that theory is tested when she asks to borrow her neighbor Miss Paget’s guinea pig, Queen Elizabeth, to make sketches. Accompanying the story are beautiful yet simple watercolor illustrations that both engage and delight the reader.
