The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit (Potter)

The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit (Potter) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin Bunny have a new friend, William the Turkey. The trio is excited for Christmas--until they realize that William is meant to be Mr. McGregor's Christmas supper! Just in time, Peter and Benjamin hide William, and the three enjoy a lovely Christmas dinner of pickled radishes and barley cake at the Rabbit family burrow.

This story is inspired by a real turkey named William that Emma Thompson met on Beatrix Potter's farm in the Lake District.

Synopsis:

Ten of Beatrix Potter?s most popular tales are brought together in this beautiful jacketed hardcover treasury. The tales trace the life of Beatrix Potter from her first publication in of The Tale of Peter Rabbit 1902 to her later tales set around her farm, Hill Top. A wonderful illustrated introduction provides background on Beatrix Potter and the people and places that inspired her writing.

Synopsis:

"Now run along, and don't get into mischief," Mrs.. Rabbit tells her bunnies.  But frisky Peter runs straight to Mr.. McGregor's tasty garden and sneaks under the gate!  This beloved classic is once again available in an 8x8 Reading Railroad, now with beautifully remastered artwork.
