When Beatrix Potter Meets Margaret Wise Brown

We were reading Goodnight Moon this afternoon and Bella pointed to the “old lady whispering hush” and said, “That’s Hunca-Munca. Her name is Hunca-Munca.”

A very curious leap of logic. Especially since the old woman is a rabbit and Hunca-Munca is a mouse.

Maybe because, like The Tale of Two Bad Mice, Goodnight Moon also features a dolls house near a fireplace?

Bella went on to say, “She wants to go in the house.” and “Hunca-Munca sweeps the floor.”
