    A sweet little mystery series that gives a charming look into Beatrix Potter's life, where her animals really come to life. Very cozy!

    The Tale of Hawthorn House is the fourth book in the cottage tales mystery series. Each book centers on Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm in England's Land between the Lakes district. Beatrix finds a baby on her doorstep. Who would abandon a baby? Captain Woodcock is determined to find out. Beatrix, with the help of the Hawthorn Folk, is able to solve the mystery. Meanwhile, out in the barn Jemima Puddleduck is determined to become a mother. Will she have the perseverance to hatch out her eggs? The threads of these two stories, (human and animal) are woven together in a delightful way. Readers of all ages will enjoy this well written book.

    Synopsis: Beatrix finds a baby on her doorstep and wonders if it was left there by one of the 'fairy people' who inhabit the area. The animals continue to interact with each other and to play roles in Beatrix's books.Review: There wasn't as much of the 'story-teller' voice in this book, which I prefer. This story makes me want to go back to the Land between the Lakes and find some of the landmarks from the books.

    "Beatrix Potter receives an unexpected -- and possibly long-term -- visitor in the form ofBaby Flora, left in a basket on her doorstep with a note, a sprig of hawthorn, and a scarab ring. No one in Sawrey has recently bec9ome a parent, so Cap0tain Mi8les Woodcock deduces that the child must belong to the bande of gypsies camped just outside of town,But the gypsies deny knowing anything about the child -- or the mysterious r8ing inscribed To R.K. Foreever. Further investigation reveals that the ring was pawned and reclaimed in Sawrey by a resident of Hawthorn House. The legendary manor is supposed to be vacant -- and is rumored to be haunted. Now, Beatrix and her animal friends are left pondering the possibility of fairy-folk involvement in these utterly pussling happenings ..."~~back coverInteresting plot and subplots, with the usual village gossip and busybodying. Our Beatrix is in the middle of the kerfuffles, as usual, and as usual they get sorted entirely to everyone's satisfaction in the end.I noticed the narrator's intrusion into the book more in this story, and that doesn't sit well with me. The Narrator becomes a character in his own right in the Winnie the Pooh movies, and that's charming, but Ms. Albert doesn't manage to pull it off half so well in these books.

    Another great book in the Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter series! I loved the relationships that were solidified in this one and am really looking forward to finishing up the series and seeing if my predictions about Ms. Potter's future are true!
