Praise for A Celebration of Beatrix Potter:

"How delightful to see Peter Rabbit, Mr. McGregor, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and company portrayed in various and unique styles. Excerpts from and introductory descriptions of nine of Potter’s books round out this superb collection... This 150th anniversary celebration of the life and work of Beatrix Potter will encourage aspiring young artists to carry on her legacy."–Linda L. Walkins, School Library Journal, Starred Review
