      Helen Beatrix Potter was an English author, illustrator, mycologist, and conservationist who was best known for her children s books, which featured animal characters such as Peter Rabbit.Born into a privileged household, Potter was educated by governesses, and grew up isolated from other children She had numerous pets and through holidays in Scotland and the Lake District developed a love of landscape, flora and fauna, all of which she closely observed and painted As a young woman her parents discouraged intellectual development, but her study and paintings of fungi led her to be widely respected in the field of mycology In her thirties Potter published the highly successful children s book The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and became secretly engaged to her publisher, Norman Warne, causing a breach with her parents, who disapproved of his social status Warne died before the wedding could take place.Potter eventually published 24 children s books, the most recent being The Tale of Kitty in Boots 2016 , and having become financially independent of her parents, was able to buy a farm in the Lake District, which she extended with other purchases over time In her forties she married a local solicitor, William Heelis She became a sheep breeder and farmer while continuing to write and illustrate children s books Potter died in 1943, and left almost all of her property to The National Trust in order to preserve the beauty of the Lake District as she had known it, protecting it from developers.Potter s books continue to sell well throughout the world, in multiple languages Her stories have been retold in various formats, including a ballet, films and in animation.

    1. I ve never heard of Jeremy Fisher and I loved this little story It had a surprise even for me The kids found this a fun little story too The nephew loved the frog pictures Jeremy Fisher is a frog and he spends a day fishing I love the art in this one too Great story Worth picking up.


    2. For my entire life, I have been reading Beatrix Potter s works and I had enjoyed most of the ones I had read Now, I had picked up an old classic from my childhood, The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher In this tale, Mr Jeremy Fisher, a distinguished frog, begins having the adventure of a lifetime when he goes out to fish for minnows for his dinner The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher is a delightful tale that every child will enjoy forever There once lived a frog named Mr Jeremy Fisher who lived in a little damp [...]


    3. In a thrift store recently, I found Beatrix Potter stories that we have never read This is brilliant children s literature When a nine year old is challenged to narrate it, and a three year old giggles along fully engaged with the story, you know you ve got a winner on your hands Three cheers for Jeremy Fisher And three cheers for butterfly sandwiches with ladybird sauce


    4. Beatrix Potter s books always appealed to me because food was always involved I grew up fervently believing in rabbits and mice and frogs having well stocked larders within their homes And the tea Always a hot cuppa waiting on the table for the protagonists when they completed their adventures.The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher comes complete with food, adventure, friendsd a well stocked larder Butterfly sandwiches and roasted grasshoppers abound And there s also Mr Alderman Ptolemy Tortoise Really, w [...]


    5. This has been my favourite Beatrix Potter story for a long long time which is amusing now seeing that I work with frogs Which makes you notice different things when you go back and read them later Unlike most children s authors writing about animals, she managed to anthropomorphise animals while still retaining the point about the animal Jeremy Fisher may be wearing a mackintosh and galoshes, but he s quite obviously still a frog, and he behaves like one although he doesn t sing, sadly That make [...]


    6. This one seemed like it might especially appeal to boys Although I don t know why frogs seem like a boy thing to me The drawings of the frogs were beautiful And the newt was really cool, too I loved the macintosh and goloshes It seems like no one dresses for rainy weather any Maybe it s because we just rush from our cars into buildings and vice versa and never spend any time out in the rain.


    7. From BBC School Radio One very wet morning Mr Jeremy Fisher, the frog, goes fishing for some tasty minnows for a dinner party So begins a day of dramatic mishaps for Jeremy Fisher, but at least he has a story to share with his friends at dinner


    8. A frog named Jeremy decides to go for fishing but rather ends up being attacked by a stickleback and a trout What s the stuff here about a lizard being named Isaac Newton Is there some irony here that I am not able to see


    9. Reading Beatrix Potter because I saw the movie about her and was delighted by her sensible delicacy and mixture of imagination and pragmatism.Maria Carmo,Lisbon 2 February 2015.


    10. Every Potter book just convinces me further love love love the illustrations Boring and or scary stories tho My kids have never been able to sit through one of her books either




    11. I decided to do some rereads of Beatrix Potter I loved them as a child, and still enjoy them as an adult.


    12. Beatrix Potter s children s stories are wonderful and timeless The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher is one of her lesser well known stories of which there are about a dozen The story is engaging and Mr Jeremy is an intriguing fellow Parts of his house are always wet and he liked getting his feet wet nobody ever scolded him and he never caught a cold Children are always being told not to get their feet wet sometimes they re told they ll get a cold if they do This, along with a host of things Mr Jeremy do [...]


    13. This is the book that taught me crazy British words, like macintosh and galoshes To this day I still think Mr Jeremy looks pretty ridiculous in his too tight rain coat Must ve been a relief when that fish gnawed it off him and his toady skin could breath again Speaking of toads, this story is also the reason why for years I thought the Adventures of Frog and Toad was written by Beatrix Potter Oh, well.


    14. After reading a couple Beatrix Potter books I thought were duds, I enjoyed this one It wasn t bogged down in too many outdated details and it had a nice little plot Cute moral of always wearing your raincoat


    15. Maybe I expected of Beatrix Potter because my childhood imagination had blown it all out of perspective Now that I m reading her as an adult I m disappointed.


    16. There is something deeply satisfying in picturing a banquet of roasted grasshopper with ladybird sauce, catering for the inner child.


    17. What a lot of trouble it is to go fishing on a lily pad in order to secure food for lunch with a friend Mr Jeremy Fisher almost doesn t come back alive Cute story, well illustrated.



    18. Charming and timeless and how fun to see Mr Jeremy Fisher in his tiny British clothing the Mcintosh, vest and riding pants Love it


    19. Epic fail fishing for Mr Jeremy, haha I wonder what butterfly sandwich taste like hmmmm



    20. Does my two year old know all the words in this book No Did he understand what was going on in the story Hard to say Did he sit entranced through the entire story Yes.Kids don t have to understand everything about a story to benefit from it that would defy the purpose of reading I love that my two year old son was able to appreciate this story full of unknowns for him, just as I enjoy reading books about situations I m not familiar with That is how we learn.


    21. Lesson Don t take on a bigger task than you are prepared for Mr Jeremy Fisher has a frightful time fishing for a dinner party His friend, Sir Isaac Newton, is a newt And a very cute one at that So funny.



    22. Two stars for story I felt very meh about it I did like the bit where view spoiler a fish nearly ate him Funny hide spoiler One extra star for illustration Pretty Rich Vivid.
