You know the old woman who lived in a shoe?
And had so many children she didn't know what to do?
Beatrix Potter gathered material for a book of nursery rhymes for many years before Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes was eventually published in 1917. Charming characters like Old Mr. Pricklepin, Diggory Diggory Delvet and, of course, Appley Dapply are brought to life with funny rhymes and beautiful watercolour illustrations.
Today Beatrix Potter's original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books.
