The Mail on Sunday
In this illustrated biography, Sarah Gristwood explores the twists and turns of Beatrix Potter's extraordinary life and its key turning points and contradictions, following her shift from a sheltered Victorian daughter to an astute modern businesswoman, a talented artist who became a scientific expert, and a famous author who gave it all up to become a farmer, then a pioneering conservationist. The book traces the creation of Beatrix's most famous characters--including the naughty Peter Rabbit, confused Jemima Puddle-Duck, and cheeky Squirrel Nutkin--revealing how Beatrix drew on her unusual childhood pets and stunning locations in her beloved Lake District.
