“I hold that a strongly marked personality can influence descendants for generations.”
~ Beatrix Potter
British author Beatrix Potter, born July 28, 1866, wrote and illustrated more than 20 children's books. She spent a solitary childhood, loved to sketch animals and later invented stories about them. In 1902, Potter published The Tale of Peter Rabbit, which launched her career as a children's author. More than 20 other books for young audiences soon followed. Potter's tales of Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Benjamin Bunny and others have become children's classics. Ms. Potter died in 1943.
