The books are designed to appeal to young children. Their format goes against the stereotype; they are miniatures rather than huge picture books. But little children love little things, which seem to be scaled down just for them. They will love to hold these and pretend to read, although they will need help with the story. When Beatrix Potter died in , she left nearly all her considerable property to the National Trust. Coming from a family with money, and achieving such fame and recognition herself, with her popular books, plus the associated merchandise, she was able to become a land-owner.

She spent her entire adult life downloading up bits of the Lake District area now Cumbria which she so loved. It was the largest gift to the National Trust which had ever been made. It included her 17th Century farmhouse "Hill Top Farm", which many enthusiastic readers now visit today.

It also took in over 4, acres of land, sixteen farms, cottages and herds of cattle and Herdwick sheep! She was a keen sheep farmer herself.

So we have a dual legacy. Yes, we have her wonderfully whimsical books. But perhaps not many people realise, as they climb the beautiful fells hills of the Lake Dictrict, that the freedom to do this is almost entirely because of Beatrix Potter's love of the natural world, her ecological views, foresight and generosity.

We used to visit the Lake District every year, to try some of the more gentle climbs up the fells. We stayed in a guest house in Near Sawrey.

Just along the road is another little village called Far Sawrey, where we sometimes visited Beatrix Potter's house "Hill Top". Her furnishings are still there and much of her memorabilia. As I wandered around the gardens once, I noticed a vegetable patch.

I saw carrots, lettuces and radishes, all growing in neat rows exactly as if Mr. McGregor had just popped inside for a moment. A perfect gift for little readers!

Scott explains: McGregor attempts to trap Peter under a garden sieve, for example, the verbal narrative presents the murderous intent of Mr.

McGregor as a matter-of-fact, everyday occurrence while the illustration presents the desperate moment from the terrified view of a small animal in fear of his life — a view that is reinforced by the birds that take flight to the left and the right. In the illustration of Peter standing by the locked door, the verbal narrative describes the scene without the flippancy evident in the moment of the sieve.

The illustration depicts an unclothed Peter standing upright against the door, one foot upon the other with a tear running from his eye. Here, verbal narrative and illustration work in harmony rather than in disharmony. Frank Delaney notes "a self-containment" in Potter's writing reflective of an uninterested mother and a lonely childhood spent in the company of pets. However, in a letter to a friend, Potter wrote that she refused Walt Disney's "scheme to film Peter Rabbit", saying, "I am not very hopeful about the result.
