Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book not only provides a backdrop for Beatrix Potter, the author of the children's books, but it presents a woman ahead of her times. She is depicted as having a sense of humour, courage and fortitude. Her talents are wide and varied and this book is an excellent medium for the reader to become aquainted with this remarkable woman.

Excellent biography, Wonderful photographs and illustrations 23 May 2007
By Bonnie1956 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is my favorite biography of Beatrix Potter, thoroughly researched and historically accurate, with many wonderful family, home and countrylife photographs (including ones of Beatrix Potter's pet rabbit, dog, and a variety of her other animal pets). The book also contains her many beautiful illustrations, watercolors and copies of some notes and letters as well as portions of her manuscripts. Judy Taylor, an author enchanted with Beatrix Potter stories and art from early childhood, also wrote Beatrix Potter: The Artist and Her World, and two National Trust Guides: Beatrix Potter and Hilltop, and Beatrix Potter and Hawkshead. She's the editor of both Beatrix Potter's Letters: A Selection and Letters To Children from Beatrix Potter.

A Beloved Author Comes to Life 24 Sept. 2010
By Nash Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The illustrations and photographs make Judy Taylor's BEATRIX POTTER a wonderful read. I first went through the book and read the capitations for all the illustrations and then went back to read the narrative.
Mrs. Hellis as Beatrix Potter preferred to be know was a remarkable woman who lived in her own time. For ten years she produced a body of work that will remain the mainstay of childhood.
Ms. Taylor brings this unique personality to life for the legions of fans around the world.

Great Biography of Beatrix's life. 7 Feb. 2014
By dettel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My wife and I have enjoyed reading the tales of Peter Rabbit and his friends for many years to our Grand children and collected many books about their adventures. We found the Judy Taylor biography to be an excellent and very well written presentation about Ms. Potter's life and love of her country life.
