A brand new picture book from the award-winning and well-loved Charlotte Voake and Deborah Hopkinson about the young Beatrix Potter and her animal friends.
Young Beatrix Potter loves to draw animals. She has many pets whom she likes to paint - a frog, a salamander, a canary and even a hedgehog. But she doesn't have a guinea pig so she borrows her neighbour's, promising that no harm will come to the cuddly creature.
After all, what could possibly go wrong...?
This hilarious and charming new book is based on Beatrix Potter's own diary entries, and is perfect for Potter fans young and old.
Charlotte Voake was born in Wales and studied at the University of London. Her first illustrations were published while she was studying there in 1978. She won the Sheffield Children's Book Award and the Smarties Book Award twice. She has been shortlisted for both the Kurt Maschler Emil Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal.
