"I am sorry to say that Peter was not well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made some camomile tea: and she gave a dose of it to Peter!" From The Tale of Peter Rabbit ~ by Beatrix Potter
But, before I digress too much, let me say that the characters RJW brings to life are more than dolls, more than art. They are icons of childhood for those of us who were real children, and those of us who have never quite grown up in some very good ways. They are soft, warm, tangible, and wonderful to hold, but also artistic, inspiring, and beautifully composed objects to admire.
