‘The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan’ features the houses, gardens and streets of the village of Sawyer, where Beatrix Potter lived, at Hill Top, her first farm. The inhabitants, however, are animals rather than people, and problems arise when a singular cat invites a slightly-finnicky dog over to visit.
The landscape that Peter Rabbit first introduced to us in 1902 is still today one of Beatrix Potter’s most popular and well-loved worlds. What started as an endearing story about a bunny rabbit would soon become the first ember for the illustrious series that is ‘The World of Beatrix Potter’, and a story which has endured retelling after retelling, at bedtimes all over the world.
Beatrix Potter (1866–1943) loved the countryside and spent much of her childhood drawing and studying animals. ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’, first published in 1902, was her first book. She later went on to publish more than twenty tales and collections of rhymes.
