This is my favorite edition of the Peter Rabbit classic, thanks to Allen Atkinson's artwork. Whether it's Peter jamming his way across the cabbage field with a rainbow in the background or the picture of Peter's butt sticking out of a watering-can, this tale of a naughty rabbit comes alive for adult and child. I will always remember this tale, as Mrs. Rabbit (widowed, sniff) purchases some currant buns, which, for my childhood, meant classroom writing came to a stop for cream tea. I love you, Peter Rabbit.
