"These sketches, illos, and paintings from the Peter Rabbit author add a rich new dimension to her legacy." --Entertainment Weekly "Families fond of the delicate watercolors and droll English country stories of Beatrix Potter will find much to enchant in The Art of Beatrix Potter, an elegant assortment of her sketches, paintings and illustrations. Among the delights: Potter's sketch in watercolor of the dramatic swoop of the Newlands Valley, the same parti-colored landscape that little Lucie trots through in The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle." --The Wall Street Journal "Emily Zach's book The Art of Beatrix Potter shows the beloved children's author was far more than a tweedy Victorian, wandering the meadows. She was an artist of astonishing range." --The Seattle Times "Cozy up with Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck in The Art of Beatrix Potter. This new collection, focusing on more than 200 of the British author and brilliant naturalist's watercolors and sketches, is an enchanting tour through the nooks and crannies Potter plumbed for her tales. Which, yes, you'll want to read all over again." --O, The Oprah Magazine
