In this fifth delightful entry, Anthony and Agatha Award nominee Susan Wittig Albert reimagines Beatrix Potter wearing her sleuthing cap as the village of Sawrey lies buried beneath a blanket of Christmas snow. Near Miss Potter’s country home in Sawrey, Mr. Wickstead is found dead under a tree limb. Many believe it had to do with a treasure he had dug up—but only Pickles, his dog, knows what happened. Miss Potter is facing dilemmas in her love life and with her parents, but she has no time to muse, what with helping humans and animals alike—and this little matter of murder.

    " What can I say? Beatrix Potter is not only one of my favorite children's book author/illustrators, she's one of my top personal heroines. The mix of talking animals, biography, and fictional mysteries might not be everyone's cup of tea, but Albert brews just the right combination for my taste. It's also perfectly appropriate for tweens and teens -- could make a great family read-aloud. "
