About the Author
Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866 and educated at home by a series of governesses. As an adult she wrote an adventure for her childhood pet Peter Rabbit and mailed it to a young friend. When she was encouraged to publish the story, she borrowed the story back and turned it into a book. Her human-like animals mice who sew, hedgehogs who do laundry, naughty bunnies who get into mischief have delighted children since they were first published in 1901.
