Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit is number one in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books, the titles of which are as follows:

1 The Tale of Peter Rabbit

2 The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin

3 The Tailor of Gloucester

4 The Tale of Benjamin Bunny

5 The Tale of Two Bad Mice

6 The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle

7 The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher

8 The Tale of Tom Kitten

9 The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck

10 The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies

11 The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse

12 The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes

13 The Tale of Johnny Town-Mouse

14 The Tale of Mr. Tod

15 The Tale of Pigling Bland

16 The Tale of Samuel Whiskers

17 The Tale of The Pie and the Patty-Pan

18 The Tale of Ginger and Pickles

19 The Tale of Little Pig Robinson

20 The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit

21 The Story of Miss Moppet

22 Appley Dapply's Nursery Rhymes

23 Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes
