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 house around a pond. One day, Mr. Jeremy Fisher decided to go fishing to catch minnows for his dinner and invite his friends Sir Isaac Newton and Mr. Aldernman Ptolemy Tortoise to dine with him. So Mr. Jeremy Fisher went out to his little boat and tried to capture a minnow, but failed at every try until a large trout came along and...
There were many different versions of this cute little tale that I have read, so it was interesting to read the original version of this tale. Beatrix Potter has definitely done an excellent job at both writing and illustrating this wonderful tale of a determined frog's pursuits in catching minnows for his dinner. Beatrix Potter's writing is extremely cute and interesting as Mr. Jeremy Fisher is shown to be an extremely distinguished animal character as he is extremely intelligent as he is always thinking of strategies to catch a minnow for his dinner and he is always determined to catch a minnow no matter how troubling the situation gets. I also loved the creative way that Beatrix Potter uses some name puns on the characters, mainly Mr. Jeremy Fisher's friend Sir Isaac Newton, who is named after the popular figure, Isaac Newton. Beatrix Potter's illustrations are extremely cute and realistic as the backgrounds are magnificently detailed as you can see luscious green pond reeds surrounding Mr. Jeremy Fisher and also the pond water looks extremely beautiful, especially during the scenes where Mr. Jeremy Fisher sails his boat on the water. My favorite images in this book were of Mr. Jeremy Fisher himself as he is brown and small and he clearly looks distinguished with his white coat and black shoes.
Parents should know that the scene where Mr. Jeremy Fisher confronts a huge trout might scare smaller children as they might worry for Mr. Jeremy Fisher. However, this scene is extremely brief, so older children might not notice this scene too much. Parents should try to comfort their children about the trout scene and make sure that their children can handle this scene.
Overall, “The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher” is a truly memorable book for children who are huge fans of Beatrix Potter's works! I would recommend this book to children ages five and up due to the trout scene.

Read information about the authorHelen 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.
