Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

Beatrix Potter is one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors, capturing our imagination for over 100 years with her beautifully illustrated Tales. However, few people are aware of the fascinating woman that Beatrix was or the achievements she accomplished in her lifetime, during an era when ambitious women were not allowed to flourish. An artist, storyteller, botanist, environmentalist, farmer and businesswoman, Potter was a visionary and a trailblazer and left an incredible legacy.

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.

Since 1984 more than 150 million Beatrix Potter books have been sold around the world, whilst over 2 million Beatrix Potter books are sold every year worldwide – so one Beatrix Potter books sells somewhere in the world every 15 seconds!

A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.

1.0 out of 5 stars Product came in dirty
By Sara Shevlin on March 5, 2020
Book itself was fine but came in dirty,,, scuff marks and looks like it was handled with dirty hands. If it was for myself I wouldn’t mind but it’s a gift for a baby shower.

I'm not one to write negative reviews....
I am sure this book is a great book, but the condition it arrived in, is not acceptable.
Within the book itself the artwork and style is great and certainly an enjoyable read. It's just the condition it arrived in.
Amazon kindly refunded me the cost without any drama's.

2.0 out of 5 stars Arrived dirty and broken
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 21, 2018
It is quite small (smaller than my hand) but looks cute and I find it OK for what it costs. Anyway, had to give 2/5 stars as it came dirty and broken (see photos). Quite disappoining as it is a gift for someone else.
