All her life, Beatrix Potter loved art, and when still very young, she was given her mother's box of watercolors. David McPhail, a favorite children's author here at Daedalus, gives readers up to 7 this lovely portrait of Potter—his "hero"—who took her paint box everywhere she went, painting her family's many pets and the nature all around her.
"Simple text and soft watercolors combine to present a glimpse into the life of a beloved author and illustrator. Rather than providing a complete biography, McPhail concentrates on Beatrix Potter's childhood love of nature and her drive to express her passion through painting."—School Library Journal
