Author(s): Beatrix Potter
It's been 110 years since Frederick Warne published Beatrix Potter's very first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and in celebration, we are delighted to be publishing special editions of her entire body of work. Unlike the traditional little white books, these editions have delightful colourful covers and specially designed endpapers. And to make them extra special, we have included a publisher's note to tell you all about the history of how each book came to be. Do you ever feel that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence? Well, so do Johnny Town-mouse and Timmy Willie. One is a town-mouse and one is a country-mouse, and when they end up in each other's worlds, they soon discover that they were much happier where they started!The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse is number 13 in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books
Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.
