Summary, etc.:
Among the creatures great and small in the Land Between the Lakes, it is widely known that a ferret will just as soon bite off your tail as look at you. But when Mr. Harmsworth barricades a common path through his Applebeck Orchard, Tabitha Twitchit and her Cat Council are curious enough to doff their compunctions and seek answers from Fritz the ferret - who, by the way, turns out to be quite civilized. Apparently, spite drove Harmsworth to erect these barricades after his haystack was torched. But reliable witnesses, including Professor Owl, Fritz, and some of the Big Folk, say this was the handiwork of neither man nor beast, but of a lantern-wielding specter. The mournful ghost has a message - and Miss Potter, for one, hopes to figure it out. Meanwhile in Sawrey, romance buds between the schoolmarm and a confirmed bachelor. Hyacinth Badger hopes to be the first female to earn the Badger Badge of Authority; and a rumor has Beatrix and the solicitor practically betrothed. But the matter of the barricade involves one and all, and Miss Potter and her friends might have to take matters into their own hands - or paws.
