    " 'Trix is for kids (of all ages). Grab your galoshes and hop along the pages with the fussy, fastidious, slightly effeminate Jeremy Fisher. Yay anthropomorphism! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/30/2014

    " I love this book. It was the first book I bought when my daughter was born. I'd read to her every night from it for years. The topsy turvy quaint writing style and stories are adorable. Plus I played Mopsy in my 2nd grade play. :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/28/2014

    " I love this sweet little collection of Beatrix Potter's growing up. They are among the best children's books out there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 1/18/2014

    " I didn't expect it to take me almost a month to read this book. Perhaps it's because I read a little at a time. the beginning of the book sped by and I enjoyed reading all of Potter's tales, as previously I was only versed in the 1st Peter Rabbit tale. But as the book wore on, I found it harder to get into some of her stories, especially the ones that were longer than her typical books. The illustrations were always great and the humanized animals were so cute. Her ideas were fun, but I guess they started to feel...um, weak? I don't know how to describe it. I think they are books one definitely should grow up with and I wish I'd had more available to me as a child. "

    " When I was a kid I would read and re-read these stories at the library. I bought this book so I could read and re-read the stories to my niece and god-daughter... I hope the tradition will continue! "

    " I just watched the movie, "Miss Potter," starring Renee Zelweger (sp?). The movie was great (my husband hated its chickiness), so I had to reread these childhood favorites. It's amazing to me how these tales have endured for over one hundred years. "

    " My favourite books as a child. My aunt gave me the complete series when I was quite young, so I grew up with them, from having them read to me to reading them myself. Random tales would get lost around the house, and I would enjoy them all over once I found again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheona | 6/20/2011

About the Author
Author Beatrix Potter

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866–1943), born in London, is regarded as 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. Her books have been translated into nearly every language and have never been out of print.
