A few years later she self-published her first book, because no publisher was interested in it. She published a few copies for her family and friends. Two years later, in 1902, Frederick, Warne and Company reconsidered publishing her “bunny book”, as they called it, and The Tale of Peter Rabbit was an immediate success.  

Beatrix Potter loved vacationing in the English lake district near Windermere, and purchased several farms to preserve the landscape of the area. Upon her death, she left nearly all of her property to the National Trust, including over

Well, it’s Christmastime. And you know what Christmas means – Charles Dickens. Dickens wrote several Christmas stories. The most famous, of course, being A Christmas Carol. A Cricket on the Hearth is another one, but it’s not super Christmasy. We have a bunch of fun characters, and Dickens’ charming prose winding around it all. I hope you like it.
