Overview

(Helen) Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) was an English author and illustrator, botanist, and conservationist, born in Kensington, London best known for her children's books, which featured animal characters such as Peter Rabbit. Educated at home by a succession of governesses, she had little opportunity to mix with other children. Potter had frogs and newts, and even a pet bat. The basis of her many projects and stories were the small animals that she smuggled into the house or observed during family holidays in Scotland and the Lake District. She was encouraged to publish her story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902), but she struggled to find a publisher until it was accepted when she was 36, by Frederick Warne & Co. The small book and her following works were extremely well received and she gained an independent income from the sales. Potter eventually wrote 23 books. These were published in a small format, easy for a child to hold and read. Her writing efforts abated around 1920 due to poor eyesight.

    Read the hard cover with real pAper pages

    This book has so many errors it is not even funny. Also They say that the rats grab the dough and butter for the cat pudding before the cat falls into thier den, and repeat that they go grab that dough and pudding again for the cat pudding after the cat falls into thier den. And thier is lots of random simbols including,:;@#$1368'$& and other random words in thier and mispellings. I suggest reading the regular hard cover with pages you can flip with your hands.

    The books ok

    It's ok. It's kind of hard to read because of it having the miss spelling problem, but at least the book is free. The story is short but still, i like the books beatrix potter makes. I once saw a movie about this book before. It was a cartoon, but i really liked it. Maybe i will be able to find it. This book does have nice pictures in it. So that helps the book. - Nicole
