Peter Rabbit is not like his siblings Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail who are quite content to gather blueberries. Peter’s natural curiosity leads him to Mr McGregor’s garden, which just so happens to be where his mum tells the naughty bunny not to go.
It’s a bit of family taboo as Mr. Rabbit met his grisly end there and was put into one of Mr. McGregor’s pies!
Now if you don’t get your Peter Rabbit fix with all 23 books in the series, it seems the cheeky bunny has hopped into the 21st century.
Today’s tech savvy kids (and lets face it, they all are) can go to peterrabbit.com where there are online games and loads of things to make and do. Perfect for that next rainy day mum and dad!
With Beatrix Potter’s beautiful fluid text, timeless illustrations and mischievous hero – this book is as charming as ever. I still love you, Peter!
