According to this writer’s artistic and erudite neighbor Katherine, 2016 marks 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter. Although her official birthday is not until July 28th, springtime always brings Ms. Potter to mind. The beloved British author wrote and illustrated more than 20 children’s books starring Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, and Benjamin Bunny.
Beatrix Potter’s tales have become children’s classics. And earlier this year Potter fans received welcome news. A previously unpublished story, “The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots,” would be making its way to bookstore shelves this Fall. An unedited manuscript for the work had been discovered by children’s book editor Jo Hanks. Potter had only done one illustration for the book so noted artist Quentin Blake created the images to accompany this tale.
Scheduled for publication on September 16th, “The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots” (to pre- order click on title) is available both in hard cover and on Kindle.
