Description

Beatrix Potter is one of the world’s bestselling, most cherished authors, whose books have enchanted generations of children for over a hundred years. Yet how she achieved this legendary status is just one of several stories of Beatrix Potter’s remarkable and unexpected life.

Inspired by the twenty-three ‘tales’, Matthew Dennison takes a selection of quotations from Potter’s stories and uses them to explore her multi-faceted life and character: repressed Victorian daughter; thwarted lover; artistic genius; formidable countrywoman. They chart her transformation from a young girl with a love of animals and fairy tales into a bestselling author and canny businesswoman, so deeply unusual for the Victorian era in which she grew up.

Embellished with photographs of Potter’s life and her own illustrations, this short biography will delight anyone who has been touched by Beatrix Potter’s work.
