Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One snowy afternoon Peter Rabbit leaves his home under the root of a big fir tree and goes out to collect firewood. This is the start of a wintry adventure, which takes Peter into many unexpected encounters before he finally returns safe and sound to his cozy burrow.

Envelopes are included throughout, each containing a snowflake decoration to use on the pop-up fir tree at the end of the story. This book uses rare winter illustrations from Beatrix Potter and is perfect for a winter's night!

Review:

"In this story drawn from Potter's The Tale of Mr. Tod, Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin ignore their parents' advice to stay close to home because of the lurking fox, Mr. Tod. On each page, tiny envelopes appear, containing sparkling, removable snowflakes that readers can collect as the boys encounter characters like Mrs. Tittlemouse, whose babies have gone missing, and Mr. Cat. After a run-in with the sly fox, Benjamin and Peter rush home, where a giant fir tree, the book's sole pop-up, unfolds into a glittering, icy blue monument, on which readers can place the snowflakes. It's a subtle gem with a big finish. Ages 5 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
