Trivia Facts on Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit

Did you know that:
Beatrix Potter did not go to school.

She loved and studied nature.

She painted beautiful landscapes.

The tales of Peter Rabbit was a letter written to an ill little boy in 1893.

Petter Rabbit was not been out of print since 1902.

She wrote 22 other books and bought a farm with the proceeds.

She raised sheep.

She created the first patented stuffed toy in 1903, which makes Peter Rabbit the oldest licensed character.

There was a movie made about her life entitled "Miss Potter".

She was played by Renee Zellweger.

Some of her other stories include: "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny", "The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy Winkle" and "The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies".

I particularly loved Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton Tail when I was a child. These stories are indeed timeless tales.
