It was followed the next year by The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin and The Tailor of Gloucester which had also first been written as picture letters to the Moore children.
Working with Norman Warne as her editor, Potter published two or three little books each year for a total of twenty-three books.
The last book in this format was Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes in 1922, a collection of favourite rhymes.
Potter continued creating her little books until after the First World War when her energies were increasingly directed toward her farming, sheep-breeding and land conservation.
