Life in a small town.

"you may go into the fields or down the lane, but don't go into into Mr. McGregor's garden: your Father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor."

And so it begins! That's one of the best things about having a nearly 3 year old granddaughter, rediscovering classics like The Tale Of Peter Rabbit. Seeing her engrossed and fascinated, feeling the thrill once more through her eyes. Has there ever been a more scary literary villian than Mr McGregor?

    Oh for the days when being baked in a pie was a distinct possibility.

    Children love terror - otherwise Roald dahl would have been redundant.

    you seem to have taken to being a Grandad with aplomb Mick.

    I've never actually read Peter Rabbit. One of the main reasons for having kids that I can think of is to read to them though, I'd like to see how a little human that I made would react to Bigwig. I bet she'd dig him.

    Haha, to a three year old and her grandpa, probably no, mick.

    Have you got another blog post in you or what?
