The Tale of Mr. Tod

The Tale of Mr. Tod Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.

The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.

Synopsis:

Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny are back in this adventure that also features two particularly "disagreeable" villains. Fortunately, the villains hate each other, so when Tommy Brock kidnaps Benjamin's young family, Mr Tod might just be able to help.

Synopsis:

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of "The Tales of Peter Rabbit, " Frederick Werne proudly announces all 23 of Beatrix Potter's original tales are now available in these special editions, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide, and introduces favorite characters to a new generation. Full-color illustrations.
