Beatrix Potter question on UniChallPro

Wonderful question on UniChallPro* last night - "which Beatrix Potter book is the only one with a human in the title?"

Now, granted, I'm not au fait enough to know the right answer (The Tailor of Gloucester, apparently), but even so I was rather shocked to see two teams of intelligent adults guess at Peter Rabbit (which, as the name suggests, is about, um, a rabbit) and Mrs Tiggy-Winkle (about a hedgehog).

I don't know - professionals nowadays. Tch.

(I bet the students would've got it right...)

David.
