Although Miss Potter tells usI do not know what occupation he pursues her drawing shows Ginger laying nasty traps with big metal teeth on the warrenMiss Potter's illustrations often convey information she does NOT provide in the text AND Miss Tabitha Twitchett put up all her prices and refused to give creditAfter this Tale of 1909 Miss Potter's Tales just get nastier and nastier They are thrilling and delightful I'm sure All those Edwardian era Mums and Dads had no idea what subversiveness and violence was being smuggled into Junior's nursery under innocent covers By 1912 Miss Potter had declared that she was tired of writinggoody goody books about nice people No wonder World War One broke out only a couple of years later And yet the History Books never mention Miss Potter as a possible CauseNor does Feminism EPILOGUEMiss Potter knew a lotPost Traumatic Stress Disorder???Tom Kittenvictim of the rat Anna Maria who tied him up; and her husband MrSamuel Whiskers who helped her encase him in dough to be cooked and eatenPoor Tom is rescued just in time But ever afterwards he has always been afraid of a rat; he never durst face anything that is bigger than a mouseAnd I doubt any sensitive reader will eitherExcept the Insensitive who will no doubt join the Army
