About this book The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the original classic by Beatrix Potter. It tells the story of a very mischievous rabbit and the trouble he encounters in Mr McGregor's vegetable garden! Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format. Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time.
Reviews from Around the World "The quintessential cautionary tale, Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. He quickly gets in over his head, when he is spotted by farmer McGregor himself. Any child with a spark of sass will find Peter's adventures remarkably familiar. And they'll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the "good" sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime."— Amazon.com
"A remake of the vintage Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit tales. This version of less than thirty pages does not match the original collection of Peter Rabbit tales, but it is a nice introduction to the lessons of Peter for younger children. It lacks the lyrical language and appears curt in a few sections. On the other hand, the essential story is present. Peter, unlike his siblings, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail, cannot avoid containing his curiosity and disobeying his mother. He soon finds himself being chased by Farmer McGregor facing a fate similar to his father. Peter is a clever fellow, but he has several narrow escapes. In the end, his siblings do seem to be properly rewarded, while he remains the black sheep of the family.
The watercolor illustrations are not quite as muted and are more modern. They do an adequate job of portraying the action for young readers. I would recommend the book especially for preschoolers"— Barbara Mojica, Amazon
