Helen Beatrix Potter was born in 1866, and lived in the English countryside with her artistic parents. She had few friends beyond her large extended family, but enjoyed watching the little animals that inhabited her family's property. Often she sketched and painted, even writing imaginative stories about the animals at a young age . This innate artistic and creative gift was most famously expressed through a series of tales she wrote about a character called Peter Rabbit. In all, she wrote twenty-three such tales, including:
