Three manuscripts were then found in the Victoria and Albert Museum archive, handwritten in school notebooks a rough colour sketch of Kitty in Boots, a pencil sketch of villain Mr Tod and a dummy book, with some of the manuscript laid out.Potter said in letters, also kept in the archive, that she had wanted to finish the story but “interruptions began”, including the First World War, her marriage and illness.Ms Hanks said: “The tale really is the best of Beatrix Potter.”It has double identities, colourful villains and a number of favourite characters from other tales [including Mr Tod, Mrs Tiggy Winkle, Ribby and Tabitha Twitchit].”And, most excitingly, our treasured, mischievous Peter Rabbit makes an appearance albeit older, slower and portlier!”An extract from The Tale of Kitty in Boots by Beatrix Potter, published by Frederick Warne Co at Penguin Random House Children’sOnce upon a time there was a serious, well behaved young black cat.It belonged to a kind old lady who assured me that no other cat could compare with Kitty.She lived in constant fear that Kitty might be stolen “I hear there is a shocking fashion for black cat skin muffs; wherever is Kitty gone to? Kitty! Kitty!”She called it “Kitty”, but Kitty called herself “Miss Catherine St Quintin”.Cheesebox called her “Q”, and Winkiepeeps called her “Squintums”. They were very common cats. The old lady would have been shocked had she known of the acquaintance.And she would have been painfully surprised had she ever seen Miss Kitty in a gentleman’s Norfolk jacket, and little fur lined boots.Now most cats love the moonlight and staying out at nights; it was curious how willingly Miss Kitty went to bed.And although the wash house where she slept locked in was always very clean, upon some mornings Kitty was let out with a black chin. And on other mornings her tail seemed thicker, and she scratched.It puzzled me. It was a long time before I guessed there were in fact two black cats!Ms Hanks said Blake “had to be” the one to illustrate the newly discovered story.Blake said: “It seemed almost incredible when, early in 2015, I was sent the manuscript of a story by Beatrix Potter; one which had lain unpublished for 100 years and which, with the exception of a single drawing, she had never illustrated.”I liked the story immediately it’s full of incident and mischief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.”This year marks the 150th anniversary of Potter’s birth. The Tale of Kitty in Boots is being published by Frederick Warne Co, Potter’s original publisher.Explore the BBC Home Home News News Sport Weather Shop Earth Travel Capital iPlayer Culture Autos Future TV Radio CBBC CBeebies Food iWonder Bitesize Travel Music Earth Arts Make It Digital Taster Nature Local Tomorrow’s World
