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.

    "The Tailor of Gloucester" was first published in 1903 and tells the story of a poor tailor trying to survive in his freezing workshop over a hard winter. He has a terribly important commission to complete for the Mayor of Gloucester's wedding on Christmas Day but is ill and tired, and before long is running out of food and thread, as well as time! How will he possibly complete the beautiful coat and embroidered waistcoat? Luckily, there lives in the dresser, some very kind and very resourceful mice who set about helping the poor tailor with his work. Not only are they exceedingly helpful, but they are also, luckily, far too clever for the tailor's sly cat, Simpkin.

    This stunning Christmas version of the classic tale is the perfect stocking-filler. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tale. It tells the story of a very mischievous rabbit and the trouble he encounters in Mr McGregor's vegetable garden! Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for end papers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format.
