i really don't know much about Beatrix Potter, then start to do some studies on her biograph, and got the book as previously posted. and yes, you would be amused by those delicate drawings, which were her studies on the nature of fungi,and it seems i am going together with her microscope and day by day recording the growth on the living species.
