Beatrix Potter stories were my favorite childhood stories, I especially loved the drawings. even as a frown up I still find her artwork as appealing as ever.
Over 100 years after she published her first book "The Tale of Peter Rabbit ", Her characters still seem to have a timeless appeal that has never really waned in all that time. People both young and old find them cute, yet they are not overly cutesy, showing a lot of realistic detail.
