Captures the artist's life and work

Beatrix Potter's childhood was characterized by a distinctly Victorian mixture of privilege and neglect. Her parents were distant and distracted, so she was left largely to her own devices. She found companionship in nature, in the small animals she met in the family's garden and in the countryside on summer visits. And she found happiness in drawing and writing stories about her animal friends, later the inspiration for The Tale of Peter Rabbit and her twenty-two other books.

Beatrix Potter's own words, taken from her letters and journals, are incorporated in Jeanette Winter's book - just slightly larger than Beatrix Potter's little books - and this portrait pays a glowing tribute to the grande dame of children's literature.
