Review by questbird
Children's fiction. Just for fun, and because I said I'd list all the books I read. This book had been read to me (probably many times) before this year (2001).
Review by Gorthalon
A very enjoyable book! It's longer and a bit darker (well, certainly less light and sweet) than a lot of Miss Potter's books. <br/>One of the great things about it is that even though Mr Tod and Tommy Brock are both unsavoury characters, they had variation. They weren't completely evil.
