The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots

Oh Joy!  A new Beatrix Potter book has been discovered.  Beatrix Potter would be 150 on July 28, 2016, and her writing lives on.  Her latest book – The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots will be published in September.

“The tale really is the best of Beatrix Potter. It has double identities, colourful villains and a number of favourite characters from other tales (including Mr Tod, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, Ribby and Tabitha Twitchit)”. An “older, slower and portlier” Peter Rabbit also makes an appearance.”  from Jo Hanks who discovered a letter Beatrix Potter had sent her publisher about the manuscript in 1914, leading to the search for the book.

  1. I have read all of them!! Both as a child and then as a parent. My Mum collected them for me at one time – I think a gas station of all places was having a promo with them. When I was young they were very popular in Canada, with the British influence of course. They really are the most delightful stories, and I find myself to this day referencing them even in general conversation.
