Beatrix Potter 150 Years Blog Tour Giveaway #Beatrix150

We are halfway through the Beatrix Potter blog tour and I am taking over the baton from Anna at In The Playroom. Tomorrow you can visit Tami over at Mummy of Two for the next stage of the blog tour!

This year marks 150 Years since Beatrix Potter was born. Beatrix Potter was so much more than the author and illustrator that we have all come to love. She was an artist, storyteller, botanist, environmentalist, farmer and businesswoman. Now 150 years after her birth, we are celebrating the incredible life she led and the achievements she accomplished, many of which were unrecognised during her lifetime.

150th logo (1)

Peter Rabbit is the oldest licensed character in the world after Beatrix Potter registered him at the Patent Office in December 1903 and that much loved character has led on to so much more. Nowadays one Beatrix Potter book is sold somewhere in the world every 15 seconds and The Tale of Peter Rabbit has been translated into over 45 languages including a hieroglyphic edition. It just shows that so many years after Beatrix Potter’s death she has left a legacy that has inspired so many generations – and continues to do so.

I have loved Beatrix Potter since my own childhood. I remember fondly when our local supermarket had an offer on to get Beatrix Potter books for £1 each when you bought something – maybe jam – and my parents let me have a book every week with the weekly shop. We had so much jam but they just loved fuelling my love of reading with these gorgeous hardback Beatrix Potter books which I read countless times. 

Now, as an adult I still love Beatrix Potter – and had a lovely Peter Rabbit themed gift from The Biscuiteers which couldn’t have been a better way to commemorate 150 Years of Beatrix Potter!
