Beatrix Potter in America

If you are lucky enough to live in or near Boston, check out "Beatrix Potter in America" at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. (Roger Sutton of The Horn Book recently visited the Carle Museum and recorded his impressions on his blog Read Roger.)

Grace Glueck covers the event for the New York Times today. The exhibit features work given to Americans by Beatrix Potter during her lifetime and is curated by, "Lolly Robinson, a children's literature specialist in Boston."

I loved most of Beatrix Potter's books as a child, although I must admit I had a clear favorite--The Tale of Two Bad Mice. Their disappointment with the plaster food is palpable and their ingenuity inspiring.

Which is your favorite Potter?
