Join mischievous bunny Peter Rabbit as he explores Mr. McGregor's garden and finds a heap of trouble in this enchanting edition of Beatrix Potter's classic tale, charmingly illustrated by best-seller Charles Santore (The Night Before Christmas).
This is a board book.
Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District.
It was not until the age of 35 that Beatrix embarked on her brillantly successful career as a children's author and illustrator. After the publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit in 1902, the demand for her work was great. Beatrix published an average of two new stories a year up until the First World War.
In 1913, Beatrix Potter married William Heelis, an Ambleside solicitor, and settled in the Lake District. For the last 30 years of her life, her writing and illustrating was replaced by a second career as a farmer and countryside conservationist. The popularity of her little books, however, has endured throughout the world. Towards the end of her life, Beatrix Potter wrote, 'If I have done anything - even a little - to help small children appreciate honest, simple pleasures, I have done a bit of good.'
