Beatrix Potter

Helen Beatrix Potter (Londra, 28 luglio 1866 – Near Sawrey, 22 dicembre 1943) è stata un'illustratrice, scrittrice e naturalista britannica, famosa per i suoi libri illustrati per bambini.Le sue opere celebrano la vita e la natura nella campagna inglese attraverso il racconto delle avventure di animali antropomorfizzati. Beatrix Potter fu ed è ancora oggi una delle più lette e amate scrittrici di letteratura per l'infanzia; i suoi 24 racconti sono stati tradotti in 35 lingue e hanno venduto oltre 100 milioni di copie. Le sue storie sono state adattate al cinema, rielaborate nella musica e nella danza; la sua vita raccontata in un lungometraggio cinematografico e televisivo.La passione per la natura, per gli animali e per la pittura, in particolare ad acquerello, fu il tema conduttore della vita della Potter fin dall'infanzia, che si riflette nelle sue opere letterarie. I suoi libri illustrati ebbero un grande successo, e i corrispondenti introiti, uniti all'eredità ricevuta da una zia, le consentirono di comprare prima il terreno di Hill Top Farm a Near Sawrey, un villaggio nel Lake District, e poi quello di numerose fattorie adiacenti per preservare il paesaggio collinare di quel paese. Inoltre, la Potter si impegnò nella salvaguardia dell'ambiente naturale dei terreni di sua proprietà, che alla sua morte lasciò in eredità al National Trust; questi terreni costituiscono gran parte dell'odierna area naturale protetta del Lake District National Park.

    Tommy Brock (a badger) has stolen Benjamin Bunny's babies and intends to eat them! Shocking premise for a children's tale, not to mention elder abuse. Nature is not always pretty, and Ms. Potter was tired of writing only the pretty stuff. As always, her mingling of human traits and animal characteristics is masterfully done so that you learn much of animal behaviour without feeling that you are being taught.

    Children's fiction. Just for fun, and because I said I'd list all the books I read. This book had been read to me (probably many times) before this year (2001).

THE TALE OF MR. TOD

I have made many books about well-behaved people. Now, for a change, I am going to make a story about two disagreeable people, called Tommy Brock and Mr. Tod.

Nobody could call Mr. Tod nice. The rabbits could not bear him; they could smell him half a mile off. He was of a wandering habit and he had foxey whiskers; they never knew where he would be next.

One day he was living in a stick-house in the coppice, causing terror to the family of old Mr. Benjamin Bouncer. Next day he moved into a pollard willow near the lake, frightening the wild ducks and the water rats.

In winter and early spring he might generally be found in an earth amongst the rocks at the top of Bull Banks, under Oatmeal Crag.

He had half a dozen houses, but he was seldom at home.

The houses were not always empty when Mr. Tod moved out; because sometimes Tommy Brock moved in; (without asking leave).

Tommy Brock was a short bristly fat waddling person with
