Book Review:The Tale of Hawthorn House by Susan Wittig Albert

Book Description:
Miss Beatrix Potter finds the abandoned Baby Flora—and a scarab ring—on her doorstep. An investigation reveals that the ring was pawned and reclaimed by a resident of the vacant and supposedly haunted Hawthorn House. Now Beatrix and her animal friends are left pondering these utterly puzzling happenings.

My thoughts:
The Tale of Hawthorn House by Susan Wittig Albert is the fourth book in The Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter. Again Beatrix Potter finds herself solving yet another mystery, Jemima Puddle-duck is determined to hatch some eggs and the whole village is busying settling every one's business (without their knowledge or consent). Filled with delightful dialogue between the animals, villagers and the "Folk" people The Tale of Hawthorn House is a delightful read.


  1. This sounds great! Is it a juvenile story or an adult story?

  2. I've really enjoyed reading this series. Can't wait to start on number five.
