Description

"Ah! Is that so? Indeed!" said the gentleman with sandy whiskers, looking curiously at Jemima. The first farm that Beatrix Potter owned was called Hill Top and she used it and its Lakeland surroundings in The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck. Jemima was a real Hill Top duck who wasn't good at hatching eggs and Beatrix Potter's favourite sheepdog, Kep, features as the wise friend who rescues Jemima from the deceptively charming sandy-whiskered gentleman.

Author Biography

Beatrix has created some of the best-loved characters in children's literature Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District. She started her career as children's author and illustrator in 1901 when she was thirty-five. In the years before the First World War, demand for her work was so great that she was publishing an average of two new stories a year. As she became financially independent, she was able to buy some land in the Lake District and in 1913, on her marriage to solicitor William Heelis, she moved to live there permanently. For the last thirty years of her life, writing and illustrating gave place to a second career as a sheep farmer and countryside conservationist. Her little books never lost their popularity however and today they sell in their millions, translated into numerous languages, and the pleasures of those timeless tales continue to be enjoyed by children all over the world.
