About the author

Biography of Potter, Beatrix

(Helen) Beatrix Potter, 1866 - 1943 (Helen). Beatrix Potter was born in 1866 in London where she was privately educated. During most of her adult life, she lived in a farm cottage in Sawrey, Westmoreland County. She was unsuccessful in trying to publish her serious botanical work, watercolor studies of fungi, but she wrote and privately published "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" for an invalid child in 1900. This story became a children's classic throughout the world.

Other animal characters created by her include, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-Duck, and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. Her tales are illustrated by her own hand in delicate and detailed watercolor pictures depicting her characters. Potter's other works include "The Tailor of Gloucester" published in 1902 and "The Tale of Tom Kitten" published in 1907. At her death in 1943, she bequeathed her property in Sawrey to the National Trust, which also maintains her home as a museum.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by high quality, beautifully bound This excellent volume, in its own book sleeve, is a beautifully bound book with excellent color illustrations of Beatrix Potter's original watercolor images. The colors are subtle and true to the originals. The font is easy to read, just as the author wished it to be. The paper is of the highest quality. 07/31/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Better than cartoons Classic tales for little ones to love as much as their grandparents did. 12/31/2008
Rated 5 out of 5★ by A rekindled love of literature I bought this book for my daughter to replace a similar book that was lost in a housefire. The stories in the previous book were tamed somewhat for younger children. So she was absolutely thrilled to have them in their original text. Plus there were stories works that had not previously been published. She was very impressed. She read the whole book cover to cover that evening. 06/06/2010
