Beatrix Potter story rediscovered after 100 years

Posted at 7:27AM Tuesday 26 Jan 2016

A story written by children's author Beatrix Potter over 100 years ago will be published in September.
The manuscript, titled The Tale Of Kitty-In-Boots, was rediscovered two years ago by 
publisher Jo Hanks.

It seemed almost incredible when, early in 2015, I was sent the manuscript of a story by Beatrix Potter, one which had lain unpublished for a hundred years and which, with the exception of a single drawing, she had never illustrated."
