Beatrix Potter was born in 1866 in London. Her family spent long periods each year on holiday in the country, in Scotland and later on in the Lake District. Throughout her childhood and teens she painted and drew constantly, developing meticulous skill at observing the world around her.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published in 1902, was Beatrix Potter's first book, expanded from an illustrated letter she had sent in 1893 to a young friend who was ill. One hundred years later the classic tale of naughty Peter Rabbit's escape from Mr McGregor's garden still brings to children all over the world the pleasure that it gave to its very first reader.
