History Of The Tale Of Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit first appeared in 1902 when children’s author Beatrix Potter first published what was to become her best-seller, The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten.

Today Beatrix Potter’s original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books.
