Beatrix Potter

Born in Kensingston in 1866 and largely associated with her love of animals and the Lake District, Beatrix Potter was the creator of "Peter Rabbit", Jemima Puddle-Duck and Squirrel Nutkin. Her illustrated stories quickly became iconic classics and continue to be popular with children to the present day. Beatrix Potter died in December, 1943 and left nearly all her property (including over 4,000 acres of land) to the National Trust. She's widely credited with preserving the land that constitutes the Lake District National Park.

    Including a big, furry, friendly Peter Rabbit hand puppet to play with, this board book gives children a chance to really play with him as they listen to the story and join in with the actions. Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs.Tiggy-winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. From the revenue from the sales of her books, Beatrix Potter bought a farm - Hill Top - in the English Lake District, where she later became a farmer and prize-winning sheep breeder. She launched the now vast merchandise programme by patenting the very first Peter Rabbit doll in 1903. The product range continues to grow today with licences around the world including baby clothing and bedding, nursery decor products and collectables. Upon her death, Beatrix Potter left 14 farms and over 4000 acres of Lake District farmland to the National Trust so that the place that she loved would remain undeveloped and protected for future generations to enjoy. Today Beatrix Potter's original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books. Look out for Beatrix Potter's original series of classic tales, published by Warne: The Tale of Peter Rabbit; The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin; The Tailor of Gloucester; The Tale of Benjamin Bunny; The Tale of Two Bad Mice; The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle; The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher; The Tale of Tom Kitten; The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck; The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies; The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse; The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes; The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse; The Tale of Mr. Tod; The Tale of Pigling Bland; The Tale of Samuel Whiskers; The Tale of The Pie and the Patty-Pan; The Tale of Ginger and Pickles; The Tale of Little Pig Robinson; The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit; The Story of Miss Moppet; Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes; and, Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes.
