Meet the Author

Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) born in Kensington Square, London, England, was raised by governesses and nurses, with little interaction with her parents. Alone in the third floor nursery, she spent her time studying and sketching the small animals that were her closest companions. Her brother Bertram was born six years later and for a time they became inseperable companions. In the summers the Potter rented a house in the Scottish highlands and here the children would spend joyous hours exploring the countryside, gathering plants, insects, rocks and fossils.
