Reviews of : The Tale of Ginger and Pickles by Beatrix Potter PDF Book
Inside this Book – I have an odd relationship with Beatrix Potter. Our family owned a few of her famous books, which must belong to my brothers. Susan Wittig Albert authored a series about animals and Beatrix solving mysteries. They follow the timeline of her book-publishing and marriage to Will Heelis. I feel like I know her. Unfortunately, when I read a couple of her stories, I disliked them. Certainly attributable to the corporal discipline mindset of the early 1900s in which they were created, I could not get aboard their infamy and see past the gloomy morals I loathed of “Aesop’s Fables”. It is enough to go through something trying or scary. No one deserves harsh outcomes merely for an error or emotions getting away from them. I could not believe pictures were drawn of characters being smacked in some of her books. Draw something else! Taking eggs away from “Jemima Puddle-Duck” who wanted to be a Mother, was an idea that angered me most. “The Tale Of Ginger And Pickles” does not end on a high note either and I wonder if that era had a concept of inspiring youth to succeed, by showing success. It is, however, a more innocuous story; if not an odd, grown-up moral to impart.
Inside this book –The Tale of Ginger and Pickles PDF Book by Beatrix Potter – Delightful and very funny, though minimally narrative, this relatively lesser-known Potter classic treats of Ginger and Pickles, a cat and terrier who run (very poorly) a shop that competes with Miss Tabitha Twitchett’s, primarily by giving credit whereas hers does not, Consequently, their sales are significantly higher, but their revenues non-existent, until they go bankrupt. Many very funny, mordant moments, notably after the pair close the business, and we learn that Ginger now lives in “the warrens,” and is quite healthy-looking–because, as the picture (but not the text) makes clear, she is living now by trapping and eating the creatures that hitherto were her customers. The tension in Potter between light fun for children and a very clear-eyed understanding of the predatory world of nature (both human and otherwise) is especially evident here. And it doesn’t hurt that the book features some remarkably fine illustrations, in both black and white and colour. Potter conceals her sharp satire beneath a very sweet surface.
