When Mrs. Rabbit begs her four furry children to stay away from Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter Rabbit naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. But when he is spotted by the farmer himself, the chase is on! A century after it was first published, Beatrix Potter's beloved tale of a certain naughty bunny with a taste for radishes continues to enchant readers. Using Potter's original text, popular illustrator Michael Hague has made Peter's world bigger and brighter than ever, bringing this cherished tale to a new generation of youngsters, in a larger format that will delight mischievous bunnies young and old.
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
A wonderful old family favorite! Enjoyed reading it again, then to my grandchildren. Glad to see it's still as loved as ever.

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.
