#1 The Tale of Peter Rabbit
First published by Frederick Warne in 1902, this classic is still Beatrix Potter’s most popular and well-loved tale. It tells the story of a very mischievous rabbit and the trouble he encounters in Mr McGregor’s vegetable garden!
#2 The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin
Beatrix Potter’s famous tale of a naughty squirrel who loses his tail is as popular today as it was when it was first published over 100 years ago.
#3 The Tailor of Gloucester
The Tailor of Gloucester was first published in 1903 and tells the story of a poor tailor trying to survive in his freezing workshop over a hard winter. He has a terribly important commission to complete for the Mayor of Gloucester’s wedding on Christmas Day but is ill and tired, and before long is running out of food and thread, as well as time!
#4 The Tale of Benjamin Bunny
Peter Rabbit’s cousin, Benjamin Bunny, has been a very popular character since this book’s first publication in 1904. In this tale we hear all about his and Peter’s adventures in Mr McGregor’s vegetable garden, and what happens to them when they meet a cat!
#5 The Tale of Two Bad Mice
As lively and funny today as it was when it was first written. See the chaos that ensues when Tom Thumb and Hunca Munca, two naughty little mice, creep into Lucinda and Jane’s doll’s house one morning.
#6 The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle
An original classic by Beatrix Potter, “The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-winkle” was first published in 1905, and is as charming today as it was then. It tells the tale of a hidden home high in the hills. It is discovered one day by a little girl called Lucie, who is in search of her missing pocket handkerchiefs.
#7 The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher
One of Beatrix Potter’s most popular and well-loved tales tells of an optimistic and slightly accident-prone frog, who sets off on a fishing expedition across the pond, only to find himself bitten on the toe by a water-beetle, fighting with a stickleback, and eventually nearly eaten by a trout!
#8 The Tale of Tim Kitten
Set in the cottage garden Beatrix created for herself at Hill Top, the farm she owned near the village of Sawrey. Tom and his sisters look so smart in their new clothes. When their mother sends them outside while she waits for her visitors, she couldn’t possibly guess what kind of mess they are going to get themselves into!
#9 The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck
Poor Jemima. All she wants to do is lay her eggs in peace, and be allowed to hatch them herself. At last she flies off and finds the perfect place. Little does the silly duck realise that the charming gentleman who has lent her his woodshed is busily planning a delicious meal of . . . roast duck!
#10 The Tale of Flopsy Bunnies
When the cupboard is bare at the Flopsy Bunny’s burrow, the family all have to go in search of food. They soon find some old lettuces on Mr McGregor’s rubbish heap, but who can imagine the horrors that await them as they enjoy a nap after lunch!
#11 The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse
Mrs Tittlemouse is a terribly tidy little wood mouse. She is always sweeping her burrow, polishing and tidying. It is an endless job and it seems that no sooner has she made a good start than another messy visitor appears to leave their muddy footprints everywhere.
#12 The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes
After a terrible misunderstanding, poor Timmy Tiptoes ends up deep inside the trunk of a dead tree, with no means of getting out. Luckily, the chipmunk who lived there was very friendly and kind to Timmy. Before long, a strong wind blows the top off the dead tree trunk, but poor Timmy can’t get himself out on account of eating far too many nuts and being a little bit too round!
#13 The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse
Do you ever feel that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence? Well, so did Johnny Town-Mouse and Timmy Willie. One was a town mouse and one was a country mouse, and when they end up in each other’s worlds they soon discover that they were much happier where they started!
#14 The Tale of Mr. Tod
The Tale of Mr Tod brings back Beatrix Potter’s most popular heroes, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny, in an adventure that also features two very disagreeable villains. Fortunately Tommy Brock the badger and Mr. Tod the fox dislike each other so much that they Tommy Brock kidnaps Benjamin’s young family, Mr Tod unwittingly becomes the rabbits’ ally.
#15 The Tale of Pigling Bland
Published the year Beatrix Potter was married and settled down to farming life for good. She had already been keeping pigs and she sketched them for this story, using her own farmyard as the setting. One little black pig was a household pet and features as the ‘perfectly lovely’ Pig-wig who runs away with Pigling Bland.
#16 The Tale of Samuel Whiskers
The first farm that Beatrix Potter owned, Hill Top, was an old house with thick walls and many hiding places for rats and mice. In The Tale of Samuel Whiskers this farmhouse is Tom Kitten’s home and the story tells what happens when Tom accidently comes upon the rat Samuel Whiskers living in a secret hideout behind the attic walls.
#17 The Tale of The Pie and the Patty-Pan
The Tale of the Pie and the Patty Pan features the houses, gardens and streets of the village of Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter lived, at Hill Top, her first farm. The inhabitants, however, are animals rather than people, and problems arise when Ribby the cat invites Duchess the dog to tea.
#18 The Tale of Ginger and Pickles
Ginger and Pickles (a terrier and a ginger cat) kept a very popular shop. Their customers loved to buy their provisions there, but they were less keen to pay for them and ran up a great deal of credit, making poor Ginger and Pickles lives very difficult indeed.
#19 Little Pig Robinson
The setting of Little Pig Robinson is based on various English seaside towns where she spent holidays when she was young. It tells the charming story of an adventurous pig who sets off on an incredible voyage aboard the ‘Pound of Candles’.
#20 The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit
This, along with The Tale of Miss Moppet, was intended for very young children. It is a simple tale of what befalls a rude little rabbit that doesn’t say ‘please’ before he takes something that belongs to someone else.
#21 The Story og Miss Moppet
This, along with “The Tale of The Fierce Bad Rabbit,” was intended for very young children. It recounts the tale of a pussy cat, Miss Moppet, chasing a mouse. It turns out to be a bit of a battle of wits, and who do you think will win?
#22 Appley Dapply’s Nursery Rhymes
Beatrix Potter gathered material for a book of nursery rhymes for many years before Appley Dapply’s Nursery Rhymes was eventually published in 1917. Charming characters like Old Mr. Pricklepin, Diggory Diggory Delvet and, of course, Appley Dapply are brought to life with funny rhymes and beautiful watercolour illustrations. This beautiful gold centenary edition celebrates 100 years since this delightful book was first published.
