Helen Beatrix Potter was an English writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her beautiful children's books featuring animals, such as those in The Tales of Peter Rabbit & Friends. For this series she used local animals and events as her inspiration, and even wrote herself into a few of her books.

Born into a privileged household, Potter was educated by governesses and grew up isolated from other children. She had numerous pets and spent holidays in Scotland and the Lake District, developing a love of landscape, flora, and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted.

Though Potter was typical of women of her generation in having limited opportunities for higher education, her study and watercolours of fungi led to her being widely respected in the field of mycology (the study of fungi). In her thirties, Potter self-published the first of her highly successful children's books, The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Thereafter Potter began writing and illustrating children's books full-time. Fifteen of which are reproduced here in all their glorious colour.

In all Potter wrote about 30 books; the best known being her 23 children's tales. With the proceeds from the books and a legacy from an aunt, in 1905 Potter bought Hill Top Farm in Near Sawrey, a village in England’s Lake District.

She died of pneumonia and heart disease on 22 December 1943 at her home in Near Sawrey at the age of 77, leaving almost all her property to the National Trust. She is credited with preserving much of the land that now constitutes the Lake District National Park. Potter's books continue to sell throughout the world in many languages with her stories being retold in song, film, ballet, and animation, and her life depicted television and feature films.

The Tale of Tom Kitten is a tale about teasing, featuring a kitten and a mouse, that was written and illustrated by Beatrix Potter and is book 11 in the Tales of Peter Rabbit & Friends series.
This tale is about manners and how children react to them.

Tabitha Twitchit, the cat, invites friends for tea. In order to prepare, she washes and dresses her three kittens for the party, but unwisely let them play in the garden while she gets on with the preparations. Within moments the kittens have soiled and lost their clothes while scampering about the garden. The Puddle-Duck family, Mr Drake, Jemima and Rebeccah, pick up the clothes and put them on. Then waddle off to the pond to swim. Tabitha comes out to call the children in and is "affronted" by what she finds. She sends the kittens to bed, and tells her friends the kittens have the measles. Once the tea party is underway however, its "dignity and repose" are disturbed by the kittens romping overhead and leaving a bedroom in disorder. How did the Puddle-Duck family fare swimming in clothes? Well you’ll just have download and read this story to find out.
