Helen Beatrix Potter was born in 1866.

Beatrix Potter was born in London and her family were rich.

She did not have many friends when she was young but she had many pets.

On her holidays in Scotland and the Lake District, she loved to paint plants and animals.

When she was about the age of 30, she wrote 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit'. It was very popular.

After that, Beatrix Potter began writing and illustrating children's books full time.

She did not have to ask her parents for money anymore because she made a lot of money from her books.

She bought 'Hill Top Farm' in the Lake District and became a sheep farmer.

She still continued to write books and had 23 published altogether.
