Published in time for the 150th anniversary of her birth, this story stars a young Beatrix Potter, creator of The Tale of Peter Rabbit and many other classic children's books.   Master of the historical fiction picture book, Hopkinson takes readers back to Victorian England and the home of budding young artist and animal lover Beatrix Potter. When Beatrix brings home her neighbor's pet guinea pig so that she can practice painting it, well . . . it dies! Now what?   Written in the form of a "picture letter," this charming, hilarious, and mostly true tale is a wonderful introduction to a beloved author/illustrator. An author's note includes photographs and more information about Beatrix Potter's life and work. "A charming, delightful homage." -- Kirkus Reviews , Starred
