Once upon a time there was a frog called Mr. Jeremy Fisher; he lived in a little damp house amongst the buttercups at the edge of a pond.
Mr Jeremy Fisher is a frog and a keen fisherman too. He has a lily-pad boat and a fine red float with a horse-hair line and he fancies he will go and catch himself some lovely minnows for his supper and then he can invite his good friends, Sir Isaac Newton and Alderman Ptolemy Tortoise (although he only eats salad).
Look out! Look out! Mr Jeremy Fisher, if you are not careful, something else will catch you for supper instead!
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including [Peter Rabbit](/book/the-tale-of-peter-rabbit/beatrix-potter/9780723247708), [Jemima Puddle-Duck](/book/the-tale-of-jemima-puddle-duck/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247784) and [Benjamin Bunny](/book/the-tale-of-benjamin-bunny/beatrix-potter/beatrix-potter/9780723247739).
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher, the eighth book to be published, is number seven in her series of charming stories.
