Beatrix Potter Originals Series

  • (145 reviews)

    Beatrix Potter is one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors. Her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was published in 1902 by Frederick Warne, and the mischievous little rabbit was an instant hit with young readers. Potter went on to create a series of stories based around different animal characters including Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. 

    The Peter Rabbit books still adorn nursery bookshelves today, and the Beatrix Potter characters can also be found on baby books, gift sets, activity books and even on the small and big screens. 

    Most recently, the Beatrix Potter books have been given another lease of life with a major film series and a new Peter Rabbit story by Rachel Bright. However, nothing can replace Beatrix Potter’s illustrations and her timeless stories.

    The 23 original Tales of Beatrix Potter are still published by Frederick Warne and the illustrations have been re-originated to match Beatrix’s first published work.
