Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beatrix Potter’s animal stories, the first of which was published in 1902, have been a joy to generations of young readers.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous little books.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“[A] delightful production…Nadia May’s dramatization is very good. Peter Rabbit is young and reckless, Squirrel Nutkin as rude as can be, the cats sound dangerous, and the mice in ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’—well, they sound just like the most sociable mice I know.” AudioFile
“Her tales range from stories of escape from near-death to charming, eventless catalogues of animal domesticity. Each one, however, was written with a natural ear for what she described as ‘fine-sounding words.’ Her illustrations usually showed animal characters wearing human clothes but otherwise treated without sentimentality.” The Cambridge Guide to Literature in English
“The tiny books, which she designed so that even the smallest children could hold them, combined a deceptively simple prose, concealing dry north-country humor, with illustrations in the best English watercolor tradition.” Merriam Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature

Author Bio: Beatrix Potter

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866–1943), born in London, 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 (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. A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist. Her books have been translated into nearly every language and have never been out of print.
