From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- In six short chapters, Collins details Potter's life with a minimal amount of fictionalizing. Because there is no bibliography, it is impossible to know if Collins' research included Potter's childhood journals, decoded and published in 1966. However, such details as the relationship that the young Potter had with the family servants and what she ate for her meals are certainly the stuff of such journals. The book draws a fairly clear portrait of Potter's stuffy Victorian family, but in its brevity and easy-to-read format, Potter's timid, dutiful personality emerges only slightly. Patricia Frevert's Beatrix Potter: Children's Storyteller (Creative Ed., 1981) is aimed at older readers. The two biographies by Margaret Lane-- The Tale of Beatrix Potter (1968) and The Magic Years of Beatrix Potter (1978)--and Ulla Parker's Cousin Beatie (1981, all Warne) are all out of print. The book is illustrated with black-and-white drawings, some of which appear to be taken from photographs. A list of Potter's books is appended. --Patricia Homer, Lowville Academy, NY
