This stunning Christmas version of the classic tale is the perfect stocking-filler. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tale. 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 end papers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format.

The book was shipped quickly and was in good condition. I had never received a reply to an initial email, however, inquiring about the book.

100 or so years old
It's hard to believe that this wonderful tale is over a hundred years old. And still as enjoyable as ever...
"Once upon a time there were four little rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-Tail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big fir-tree..."
And so it begins, primarily about Peter and the harrowing adventure he has with a farmer. Peter of course, is unharmed, but hopefully a wiser rabbit is he...
Charming and delightful, with simply lovely illustartions.
