Catherine Brighton (au) (il). “Baby, baby, naughty baby, Hush, you squalling thing, I say. Peace this moment, peace or maybe Bonaparte will pass this way....Baby, baby, if he hears you, As he gallops past the house, Limb from limb at once he’ll tear you, Just as pussy tears a mouse.” This traditional rhyme was all that little Betsy knew about Napoleon, who was about to arrive as a “guest” on the island of St. Helena! It was to Betsy’s father’s house that Napoleon came to live when he was exiled. The reader shares Betsy’s experience as she grows less fearful & more fond of Napoleon. This story is based on true excerpts from Betsy’s journal that was pub. in 1855. A unique portrait of a legendary historical figure as viewed through the eyes of a child. Juv. aud.
