Beatrix Potter was born in 1866, in London, England. In 1893, Potter sent an illustrated letter to the son of her former governess that contained the initial elements of the Peter Rabbit story. Then in 1902, after numerous rejections, the Tale of Peter Rabbit was finally published as a children’s book. Since then, it has become a literary phenomenon, selling over 45 million copies to excited readers worldwide. For many of us, Peter Rabbit was our introduction to storytelling and remains today a tale that we will pass down to future generations of young readers.
