    I have an odd relationship with Beatrix Potter. Our family owned a few of her famous books, which must belong to my brothers. Susan Wittig Albert authored a series about animals and Beatrix solving mysteries. They follow the timeline of her book-publishing and marriage to Will Heelis. I feel like I know her. Unfortunately, when I read a couple of her stories, I disliked them. Certainly attributable to the corporal discipline mindset of the early 1900s in which they were created, I could not get I have an odd relationship with Beatrix Potter.

Certainly attributable to the corporal discipline mindset of the early 1900s in which they were created, I could not get aboard their infamy and see past the gloomy morals I loathed of “Aesop’s Fables”. It is enough to go through something trying or scary. No one deserves harsh outcomes merely for an error or emotions getting away from them. I could not believe pictures were drawn of characters being smacked in some of her books. Draw something else! Taking eggs away from “Jemima Puddle-Duck” who wanted to be a Mother, was an idea that angered me most. “The Tale Of Ginger And Pickles” does not end on a high note either and I wonder if that era had a concept of inspiring youth to succeed, by showing success. It is, however, a more innocuous story; if not an odd, grown-up moral to impart. A cat and dog run a general store and close, due to offering a credit system citizens were loath to repay. Do teach value and fairness but pages and pictures about taxes are hard to understand. Slowly, we learn a balance between generosity and keeping ourselves afloat. However, if wisdom about taking advantage is timely for toddlers, company taxation is not their relatable vehicle. Use a simple life example, with a happy outcome for everyone. Meanwhile, I admire Beatrix immensely as a person: animal advocate, mycologist, conservationist, and artist accurately painting nature.

    Traditional start of the year with a Beatrix Potter story. I liked this one. It's not really a consistent storyline, but charming and a sweet little story nonetheless. I like the combination of simple black/white pen drawings and the familiar full colour drawings of Beatrix Potter. Charming little book.

    This tale has surprising relevence in today's economy, as Pickles and Ginger run a store that fails--because they give an open credit line to anyone and everyone. Trying to bill the other animals doesn't work, so they close their store and have to find other work. Meanwhile, the other little stores in the story that take cash only survive. Huh.

    This is one of the more bizarre Beatrix Potter stories. It seems to have the same themes as previous, but the tone was decidedly different and each paragraph was rather sharp and blunt. There was not as much of the darkness of nature here, either. It is worth noting, also, that there are far fewer watercolour illustrations and many more of the black-and-white drawings than in previous books. Whilst the illustrations are on point as ever, they didn't particularly evoke anything except a nostalgia This is one of the more bizarre Beatrix Potter stories.

Whilst the illustrations are on point as ever, they didn't particularly evoke anything except a nostalgia for the previous tales, as we see a lot of the old characters making cameos in this little story. Despite these, I actually enjoyed the bizarre experience of this book. It was quite a stark difference but still ultimately Beatrix through and through.

    This was an odd little tale. It felt like a lesson in capitalism. Pickles and Ginger own a general store and they let everyone get things on credit. They never collect the money and so they have no money. The store closes and the animals move on. It is so odd. I guess it is saying you have to be able to collect the money. My niece wasn't as into this one.

    The tomcat Ginger and the terrier Pickles' village shop fails, as the local community utilizes the unlimited credit without paying their bills. This story includes cameos from multiple characters from the broader Peter Rabbit world.

    Delightful and very funny, though minimally narrative, this relatively lesser-known Potter classic treats of Ginger and Pickles, a cat and terrier who run (very poorly) a shop that competes with Miss Tabitha Twitchett's, primarily by giving credit whereas hers does not, Consequently, their sales are significantly higher, but their revenues non-existent, until they go bankrupt.

Many very funny, mordant moments, notably after the pair close the business, and we learn that Ginger now lives in "the warrens," and is quite healthy-looking--because, as the picture (but not the text) makes clear, she is living now by trapping and eating the creatures that hitherto were her customers. The tension in Potter between light fun for children and a very clear-eyed understanding of the predatory world of nature (both human and otherwise) is especially evident here. And it doesn't hurt that the book features some remarkably fine illustrations, in both black and white and colour. Potter conceals her sharp satire beneath a very sweet surface.

    The only i have ever found children's book that teaches children about credit. Very humorous but at first a difficult read only because it was so novel. I keep pausing, thinking 'is it really saying that?'My children are under 5 and I think it was hard to get them involved in the story. It had the cuteness and simplicity of potters other books. It was humorous. The cat badly wanted to eat the mice customers and the dog was in trouble with the law for not renewing his dog license.

Of the Potter books I have read, this one probably has the oldest age group in order for them to get the jokes.

    So Ginger and Pickles own a shop and give everyone credit resulting in them going bankrupt, and everyone is pissed they stay in the neighborhood. Then bitchy chicken takes over the shop and everything is fine and everyone is paid. WTH! It would seem to be a moral on extending credit... but I can't be sure. Also, the doll people are freakin' me out.

    This would have to be my favorite story so far. Eventhough this book is really old it still has some revelance to todays economy. Pickles and Ginger are running a store that fails horribly. They give their customers open credit and that seems to be the downfall of their business.

    In 1909 Beatrix Potter foresaw the ways that retailing would go, and these are the lessons I have learnt from her study: 1. Don't give credit. 2. People have no understanding of value-for-money.

    How can you resist stepping into a general store named "Ginger & Pickles" ?

    I don't think this story is structured very well because of Potter's insistence that she include her local grocer. The original script was changed and now it's tacked on at the end. Honestly, I wanted more from those creepy-ass candles, dropping like ghosts beside the mice. As it is, the main story is an idealisation of capitalism, the way we all wish capitalism still worked. It's a bit of a sombre read now we're suffering through what is hopefully late stage capitalism.

    A still very poignant story about shop life and retail in a fun tale form. One of Beatrix Potters stories that really applies to life 100 years on. A wonderful tale that shows if people take the miky with what they can get on credit. Yet I love seeing all the characters from her other books in one place doing their shopping. A fun read.

    For some reason I really enjoyed this one. It kind of reminded me of playing shoppes when I was little. The kids were very interested in the animal shop keepers.

    A rather odd book. I think the way Potter ends her books is rather annoying; no conclusion whatsoever.

    This story is funny, if not a bit dark. Ginger and Pickles are not the best shopkeepers, to be sure. Not sure why the chicken cracks me up so.
