Beatrix Potter and the Unfortunate Tale of a Borrowed Guinea Pig

by Deborah Hopkinson
Young Beatrix Potter–who will grow up to be one of the most beloved of all children’s book author/illustrators–is the star of this charming, hilarious, and mostly true story, published in time for the 150th anniversary of her birth and perfect for Common Core curriculums.

Master of the historical fiction picture book Hopkinson takes readers back to Victorian England and the home of budding young artist and animal lover Beatrix Potter. When Beatrix brings home her neighbor’s pet guinea pig so that she can practise painting it, well…it dies! Now what? Written in the form of a “picture letter,” this tale is charming and hilarious–a wonderful introduction to a beloved author/illustrator.
