Beatrix Potter Factoids

  • The Beatrix Potter Collection is a set of 9 half hour animated stories of Peter Rabbit and many more of Potter's famous characters. BBC produced this series of beautifully animated shows.
  • The Tale of Little Pig Robinson (Potter) was that last of Beatrix Potter's books, published in 1930. The manuscript was actually written much earlier, in fact it was one of the earliest, but the last to be published.
  • Beatrix potter was home-schooled by a governess. She had a fairly isolated childhood and spent much of her time sketching. She also loved to keep small mammals, reptiles and amphibians that she found in the wild as her pets. However, she wasn't very successful at keeping these finds alive when she was young.

MISS MOPPET holds her poor head in her paws, and looks at him through a hole in the duster. The Mouse comes VERY close.

AND then all of a sudden --Miss Moppet jumps upon the Mouse!

AND because the Mouse has teased Miss Moppet --Miss Moppet thinks she will tease the Mouse; which is not at all nice of Miss Moppet.

SHE ties him up in the duster, and tosses it about like a ball.

BUT she forgot about that hole in the duster; and when she untied it--there was no Mouse!

HE has wriggled out and run away; and he is dancing a jig on the top of the cupboard!
