August 2011 Guest Editor Julie Hearn has chosen this favourite tale: "When I was little I believed, absolutely, that Mrs Tiggy-Winkle washed my grandad’s socks and ironed his pocket handkerchiefs, even though he wasn’t a small animal.  To this day, I can’t look at a foxglove . . . or a squirrel in the park... or a row of lettuces in a vegetable patch... without remembering my childhood collection of Beatrix Potter books. I knew most of the stories by heart, before I could read, and The Tale of Two Bad Mice was my favourite.  There is a dark side to Potter’s tales that I somehow understood, and respected.  If Peter Rabbit’s father could end up dead in a pie, then Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca – those ham-smashing, bolster-ripping, cradle-stealing, very bad mice – might just as easily have been pulped in the nurse’s mouse trap, or caught and punished by the police-man doll.  But they weren’t.  Phew!"
