1. How many tales / stories did Beatrix Potter write during the course of her life, and what was the name of Beatrix Potter’s first book?
2. What was the name of the publisher who published Beatrix Potter’s books?
3. What is the name of Beatrix Potter’s farm, and where is it located? Also who runs the farm today?
4. Choose a favorite Beatrix Potter book and tell me about the story and its characters and why it appeals to you, or choose a favorite book of literature that appeals to you and tell me about it.
