Jemima Puddle-Duck


Jemima is based on a real duck that lived at Hill Top.

In the tale, Jemima wants to hatch her own eggs so tries to find a secret nesting place away from the farm, but runs into the foxy-whiskered gentleman who ‘helps’ her to find a suitable place.

Published in 1908, The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck features Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top farm, and her surroundings.
