About the Author

Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.

A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.

Purchased this to read to the kids as I remember the story from when I was a child. The format of this makes it a poor choice to read on a nook. Not worth the 0.99 in my opinion.

This was a lovely story. I read it again after finding it in the loft. The illustrations in the book are fantastic, they have so much depth but the writing itself was brilliant too. There was no bad grammar. I hate the 'Charlie and Lola' series that encourages bad grammar because it is perceived as cute. The grammar in this is good and it also has a large vocabulary.The story itself is good. I felt myself wanting to read on and find out what happened next because it wasn't very predictable, but when Jemima mentioned a handsome man with whiskers and in the picture was a fox, I thought 'Oh no!'. I thought the fairytale happy ending might happen, but then it didn't. It had a bit of Grimm's fairytales evilness to it. However, after the fox had been caught I thought the bit after was a bit unnecessary.A classic series!
