Synopsis

The Tale of Pigling Bland 1913-2013 by Beatrix Potter

This stunning collector's edition of Beatrix Potter's classic tale has a gold-foil jacket and is published to celebrate the centenary of the book's publication in 1912. The Tale of Pigling Bland tells the story of this brave young pig and his hapless brother, Alexander, as they set off to market and become hopelessly lost thanks to Alexander's high-spirited games. With great courage and wisdom, Pigling Bland manages to evade the clutches of a farmer and a grocer who wish to make him into bacon and ham. Along the way he also rescues a damsel in distress and together they run off - over the hills and far away.

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.
