This is a brand new picture book starring the world's most famous rabbit - Peter Rabbit. In this exciting adventure from Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress Emma Thompson (Nanny McPhee, Sense and Sensibility) Peter Rabbit squeezes under the gate into Mr. McGregor's garden and is carted away from his beloved Lake District to the Scottish lowlands. This plucky little rabbit soon finds himself in the middle of a great big, brand new adventure and has the best fun! Emma Thompson writes with a dry humour, similar to Beatrix Potter's own. She is the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale, to be published by Potter's first publisher, Frederick Warne - 110 years after the original. The delightful illustrations were created by Eleanor Taylor who has been writing and illustrating picture books for the last fifteen years. She has a great affinity for the countryside which is beautifully reflected in the engaging characters and beautiful scenes illustrated in The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit. If you grew up with Beatrix Potter's books, we're sure this tale will entertain you just as much as it will your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and any other little ones you know!

Publishers Weekly, 2012-05-14 "I have not seen many rabbits moping, but when they do, their ears droop." So begins this pitch-perfect new adventure of the mischievous bunny who first appeared 110 years ago in Beatrix Potter's original tale. Perhaps understandably, Peter is, by now, a bit bored with life in the sandbank. Warned against wandering off by Benjamin Bunny ("Too many carts on the road.... Too many owls, and too many foxes"), Peter (again) wriggles under Mr. McGregor's gate, this time into an "interesting basket smelling of onions." After eating the picnic lunch within, he nods off, awakened later by the jostling of a horse-drawn cart he's been loaded onto, which is en route to, of all places, Scotland. There he meets Finlay McBurney, "a HUGE black rabbit in a kilt, a dagger thrust into the top of his laced-up boot," and a distant relative. Peter is in good hands with Finlay and gets the adventure he sought. Thompson and Taylor preserve the delicious dry wit of Potter's original tales-this is top-notch read-aloud fare that both children and their parents will enjoy. Here's to having Peter hop into trouble for another hundred years. Includes an audio recording of the tale, read by Thompson. Ages 5-6. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
