Beatrix by Jeanette Winter

Captures the artists life and work Beatrix Potters 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 familys 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 Potters own words, taken from her letters and journals, are incorporated in Jeanette Winters book -- just slightly larger than Beatrix Potters little books -- and this portrait pays a glowing tribute to the grande dame of childrens literature.
