Beatrix Potter in the Year 2000.
May, Jill P.
Journal of Children's Literature, v26 n2 p28-34 Fall 2000
Discusses the creation and popularity of Beatrix Potter's "Peter Rabbit." Concludes that today, Potter's quiet stories offer young children a glimpse into the naughtiness that innocence fosters within the security of a family's love, and show children an idyllic time when towns were small enough that friends knew each other well and understood each person's attributes and faults.
