The cover of the rediscovered Beatrix Potter tale

Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Kitty-in-Boots was recently rediscovered by Penguin Random House Children’s, over 100 years after it was originally written.

It’s set to be released at bookstores in October this year – 150 years after Potter’s birth and just over a century after she penned the tale about the mischievous kitten.

Here’s a sneak peak at the cover – illustrated by well-known illustrator, Quentin Blake.

This is what Blake said when he was sent the manuscript: It seemed almost incredible when, early in 2015, I was sent the manuscript of a story by Beatrix Potter… I liked the story immediately – it’s full of incident and mischief and character –and I was fascinated to think that I was being asked to draw pictures for it. I have a strange feeling that it might have been waiting for me.”
