Read full description of the books A Treasury of Peter Rabbit and Other Stories:Peter Rabbit and other stories is an anthology of 7 books created by the author Beatrix Potter. Each story has its own charm as each story focuses the adventures of many types of characters ranging from humans, animals and even dolls! Each story has an endearing main character and the illustrations fit the stories very well. Most of the Main characters are animals, with the exception of at least 1 (Mrs. Tiggy Winkle), each animal is humanized and each live in either the woods or, within the homes of human characters. Each lore is comprised of the same style of illustration and by looking at the clothes some of the characters wear I believe that the setting takes sometime in early Europe.This makes sense as the author herself was European and the stories themselves have a very rural setting. Peter rabbit is the focal point of the book and two of the stories directly correlates with his story: "The tale of Peter Rabbit" and "The tale of Benjamin Bunny". Peter Rabbit is a very popular series and these books made by the same author retain that same charm in each story. The character's are funny and while humanized they retain some attributes of being animals; for example, Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca from "Two Bad Mice" acted like typical mice until later in the story they begun to act like people. This a great book for readers who enjoy a nice simple book to relax and read or to read to kids of young ages I recommend it.
Read information about the authorHelen Beatrix Potter was an English author, illustrator, mycologist, and conservationist who was best known for her children's books, which featured animal characters such as Peter Rabbit.
Born into a privileged household, Potter was educated by governesses, and grew up isolated from other children. She had numerous pets and through holidays in Scotland and the Lake District developed a love of landscape, flora and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted. As a young woman her parents discouraged intellectual development, but her study and paintings of fungi led her to be widely respected in the field of mycology. In her thirties Potter published the highly successful children's book The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and became secretly engaged to her publisher, Norman Warne, causing a breach with her parents, who disapproved of his social status. Warne died before the wedding could take place.
Potter eventually published 24 children's books, the most recent being The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots (2016), and having become financially independent of her parents, was able to buy a farm in the Lake District, which she extended with other purchases over time. In her forties she married a local solicitor, William Heelis. She became a sheep breeder and farmer while continuing to write and illustrate children's books. Potter died in 1943, and left almost all of her property to The National Trust in order to preserve the beauty of the Lake District as she had known it, protecting it from developers.
Potter's books continue to sell well throughout the world, in multiple languages. Her stories have been retold in various formats, including a ballet, films and in animation.
