The Peter Rabbit Collection


The Tale of Peter Rabbit, one of the best-selling children’s books of all time, written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter, printed privately in 1901 and published in 1902. Potter created the character of Peter Rabbit in 1893 in a letter she wrote to amuse a sick child. She used the name of her own pet rabbit, Peter, whom she had trained to do tricks. She devised adventures for Peter and gave him a mother and three siblings, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, in The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor’s Garden, with 42 black-and-white illustrations and a colored frontispiece.

Beatrix Potter employed a number of elements to create popular children's books. By crafting an imaginary world where animals wear clothing, live human lives, and go on grand adventures, Potter's books appeal to a broad, wide audience of young children. This connection with her audience, combined with strong descriptive skills, made Beatrix Potter one of the world's best-selling authors.
