The tales of Peter Rabbit and Beatrix Potter's other anthropomorphic characters began as a series of illustrated letters to the 5-year-old son of her former nanny. The nanny suggested publishing the letters, and the stories became among the best selling children's books of all time.
Beatrix Potter's fantastic menagerie wear clothes, get into mischief and learn life lessons in this charming collection of classic stories. Join Peter Rabbit as he braves Mr. McGregor's garden, Benjamin Bunny in his quest for lost shoes and a kindly tailor who is rewarded by the mice he rescued from his cat.

3. The Tailor of Gloucester

5. Jeremy Fisher
6. Peter Rabbit

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866 - 1943) was most famous for her children's books and illustrations, but she was also reknown as a natural scientist and conservationist.
Throughout her life, Potter preferred country living and kept small pets, inspiring her writing and artwork, most notably with The Tale of Peter Rabbit."
