Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
Since the early 1900s, Beatrix Potter's twenty-three little volumes featuring rabbits, mice, frogs, and other creatures have delighted children. Her first story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was an instant success. While Potter's clothed animals appear precious, the characters are in fact quite mischievous and get into scrapes that children can easily identify with. The timeless quality of Potter's stories ensures that her books will entertain generations of readers to come.

Meet the Author

Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
