Beatrix Potter fans will welcome the talented Susan Wittig Albert's The Tale of Hill Top Farm, the first in a new cozy series to feature Peter Rabbit's creator as sleuth. Newly arrived in Near Sawrey in 1905, the sensible and charming Beatrix, aided by an assortment of talking animals, looks into a suspicious death and several small happenings that mainly serve to introduce the residents of the Lake District village. Despite weak British dialogue (""By Jove"" isn't enough), this promises to be a series with legs-and tails. .
