Publisher's Summary

Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-selling, most cherished authors, whose books have enchanted generations of children for over a hundred years. Yet how she achieved this legendary status is just one of several stories of Beatrix Potter's remarkable and unexpected life.

Inspired by the 23 'tales', Matthew Dennison takes a selection of quotations from Potter's stories and uses them to explore her multifaceted life and character: repressed Victorian daughter, thwarted lover, artistic genius, formidable countrywoman. They chart her transformation from a young girl with a love of animals and fairy tales into a best-selling author and canny businesswoman, so deeply unusual for the Victorian era in which she grew up.

Big fan of Potter

I find the tone of the narrrator annoying. More subtle less stern would be ideal. Had to stop listening!
