This complete and unabridged collection contains all 23 of Beatrix Potter's Tales in one deluxe volume with all their original illustrations. The stories are arranged in the order in which they were first published to enable them to be read in proper sequence, as several are linked together by events and characters. A section at the end of the book contains four additional works by Beatrix Potter that were not published in her own lifetime.
About the Author
Written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter (1866-1943). Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous tales. A particular source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
"Peter gave himself up for lost, and shed big tears; but his sobs were overheard by some friendly sparrows, who flew to him in great excitement, and implored him to exert himself."
When I read Beatrix Potter I am surprised by the rich vocabulary. My children love them and the young ones do not find the "difficult" words off putting. We have fun sometimes trying to incorporate them into our speech: "Please exert yourself when you tidy your room!"
This is complete and unabridged collection, hardback which contains all 23 of Beatrix Potter's Tales in one volume with all their original illustrations. It should last many years.
