The Lovereading4Kids comment

From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, Beatrix Potter 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.

During the 1930’s Beatrix Potters’ publishers re-issued each title in the now iconic white jacket, small-format series. Penguin books have faithfully reproduced each and every tale using the first editions as a guide for illustrations and type that is as faithful to Beatrix Potter’s intentions as possible. The result is a treasure trove of all 23 Peter Rabbit books featured in one beautifully presented box set.

About the Author

Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District. She started her career as children's author and illustrator in 1901 when she was thirty-five. In the years before the First World War, demand for her work was so great that she was publishing an average of two new stories a year. As she became financially independent, she was able to buy some land in the Lake District and in 1913, on her marriage to solicitor William Heelis, she moved to live there permanently. For the last thirty years of her life, writing and illustrating gave place to a second career as a sheep farmer and countryside conservationist.

Her little books never lost their popularity however and today they sell in their millions, translated into numerous languages, and the pleasures of those timeless tales continue to be enjoyed by children all over the world.
