PS: Oh I ADORE Peter Rabbit! I got the samples from Dover too, do you know if I can use them for my art? I don't think there's a copyright, is there?

Wow! My favorite actress and my favorite writer.
My grandchildren form 4 and 2 are growing up with Beatrix Potter. They have a ballet from Peter Rabbit and the little mouse on DVD. They have almost all the little beast to hug.
