More about Beatrix Potter
I have been reading the biography of Beatrix Potter and wanted to share another passage from the book. One of my favorite characters from her books is Mrs. Tiggy~Winkle. For this reason, this quote was particularly humerous:
"Sometimes, on visits to relations, her companions travel unseen. 'Hunca Munca is very discontented in the small old box; I am also accompanied by Mrs. Tiggy ~ carefully concealed; my aunt cannot endure animals.'
'I have got my hedgehog here with me too; she enjoys going by train, she is always very hungry when she is on a journey. I carry her in a little basket.' "
