Who Wrote The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse

author & illustrator
Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1866, at No 2, Bolton Gardens, Kensington, London. She loved nature and drawing as a child. In 1893, Beatrix sat down to write a picture letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of her ex-governess, all about a naughty rabbit called Peter. Noel was ill in bed and so Beatrix wrote to him: “My dear Noel, I don’t know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits….” And that’s how <i>The Tale of Peter Rabbit</i> was created. It wasn’t until 1902 that Frederick Warne published what would become one of the most beloved stories in children’s books.
