Beatrix Potter and her stories are legendary. But few people know about the inspiration behind her most famous character. The Moore household is abuzz whenever Miss Potter comes to visit. And no one looks forward to her visits more than young Noel. One day she announces that she's leaving for Scotland, but promises to write. Soon after, Noel becomes bedridden with fever and only begins to get well when he receives a letter from Miss Potter. The letter is really a story—a story with pictures written just for Noel—that eventually becomes The Tale of Peter Rabbit. My Dear Noel has a simply told, endearing text that is perfect for young children, and the charming, vivacious illustrations would have pleased Potter herself. A fascinating Author's Note and reproductions of the famous letter also make this book a wonderful gift for Potter enthusiasts.
