Beatrix Potter’s tale of a black cat with a secret double life remained as an unillustrated text in the archive of her publisher for over 100 years. Quentin Blake was commissioned to illustrate the story in 2016, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of her birth - and in this picture Kitty demonstrates that she is not quite the skilled poacher she would like to be.
