Helen Beatrix Potter was an English writer, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist best known for her children’s books featuring animals, such as those in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Born into an upper-middle-class household, Potter was educated by governesses and grew up isolated from other children. This experience was the foundation of her many acclaimed children’s books she’d write in the future.

Beatrix Potter Quotes: “Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were – Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter.”

“It is said that the effect of eating too much lettuce is ‘soporific’.”

“Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.”
