BLURB: 

 

Jemima was a real duck belonging to Beatrix Potter, who lived at her farm, Hill Top. The story also features Beatrix’s own sheepdog, Kep, who thankfully manages to save Jemima from a nasty fate!

REVIEW: 

 

The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck is a short and sweet children story that presents a moral lesson on trusting strangers. I thought the story was very well written and conveyed the message in a way that could appeal to all. The imminent danger was conveyed in such a way as not to be too scary for young readers but still be evident in the text. I have really liked re-visiting this childhood read and may re-visit more of Beatrix Potter’s work in the future.
