In order to start the project off, I am preparing a picture gallery using images taken from a commercial company who make figurines of Beatrix Potter animal characters. These can be bought from the company website:
As some characters weren't available as figurines, I have also included some book covers. These are taken from www.amazon.co.uk
You may also like to look at other Beatrix Potter products from Amazon. There is a lovely ballet of the stories, a film of the life of Beatrix Potter and various other picture and colouring books.
Miss Potter [DVD]  DVD ~Renee Zellweger
Tales Of Beatrix Potter [DVD]  DVD ~The Royal Ballet
Looking at the pictures from India and the animal names reminded me of the stories of Rudyard Kipling. These stories have been very influential in English children's literature.
I will look for more information and post it on animals in many languages
