A lost story by famed British children’s author Beatrix Potter — 'The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots' — has been discovered among her memorabilia and will be published this year more than a hundred years after she wrote it.
Jo Hanks, a publisher with Penguin Random House who made the discovery at London’s Victoria & Albert museum in 2013, called the story 'the biggest Potter discovery in generations and almost certainly the last', the London Times Newspaper reported today.
According to the BBC, the 'Tale of Kitty-in-Boots' was rediscovered by publisher Jo Hanks after she found a reference to it in an out-of-print Potter biography. Quentin Blake, best known for his work with Roald Dahl, has illustrated the story, to be published in September.
