Everyone in Sawrey likes Ben Hornby. So when Beatrix finds the shepherd dead in the meadow and suspects foul play, she wonders who would have done such a thing. A trio of village cats has an idea: When Ben breathed his last, his sheep must have seen his killer before scattering. So they set out to find the far-flung flock.

Although she’s distracted by duties at the farm and the sad plight of a young girl, Beatrix must get to the bottom of this. As the stories intertwine, Beatrix and the creatures realize that all of Sawrey—both the two- and four-legged inhabitants—must work together to solve this case.

    " Cozy mystery, Austen fans will also like it as well for depiction of old English countryside, animal fans will like it as animals talk and take part in it (though humans can't understand them), reminiscent of Beatrix Potter's stories (some of whose real story is incorporated in) "

    " This is a charming series. The story focuses on Beatrix Potter when she purchased Hill Top Farm in Far and Near Swarey. She has purchased several sheep and goes to pick them up and finds the farmer dead and the sheep missing. The richest lady in the town has decided that she knows a suitable candidate for the job of local schoolmaster, even though the local woman who has been doing the job is well suited and the children love her. Then there are the animals. The local badger who keeps a chronicle of all the animal comings and goings is told that there are several badgers missing and there will be a badger baiting event held that week. He focuses his attention on getting all the other animals to assist in stopping the event. The mystery is one that is fairly easy to figure out but the story is charming and very appealing. "
