The narrative also tells how Beatrix faced up the rejection from several publishers before she found Frederick Warne. It also reveals to the reader how her life had its ups and downs, but ended happily in the Lake District, where her cottage, Hill Top, can still be visited, showing them the real person behind the author of some of their favourite animal stories.
