Beatrix Potter loved the countryside and she spent much of her otherwise conventional Victorian childhood drawing and studying animals. Her passion for the natural world lay behind the creation of her famous series of little books, A particular source of inspiration was the English Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and land conservationist, working with the National Trust. The Tale of Little Pig Robinson was the last of her stories to be published in the Peter Rabbit series but it was one of the first she ever wrote. Its setting is a mixture of various English seaside towns where she had stayed on holiday when she was young.
