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 depicts a very cross elderly rabbit in a blue coat; perhaps Peter Rabbit in late middle age.
