19 - The Tale of Little Pig Robinson

Beatrix Potter

'The Tale of Little Pig Robinson' was the last of her stories to be published in the Peter Rabbit series but it was one of the first she ever wrote. Its setting is a mixture of various English seaside towns where she had stayed on holiday when she was young. In Falmouth harbour she had once seen a pig on board a ship, and this image inspired the adventure of Pig Robinson who travels from a Devon farm to the land where the Bong tree grows.
