When Mrs. Rabbit begs her four furry children to stay away from Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter Rabbit naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. But when he is spotted by the farmer himself, the chase is on! A century after it was first published, Beatrix Potter's beloved tale of a certain naughty bunny with a taste for radishes continues to enchant readers. Using Potter's original text, popular illustrator Michael Hague has made Peter's world bigger and brighter than ever, bringing this cherished tale to a new generation of youngsters, in a larger format that will delight mischievous bunnies young and old.
Mrs. Rabbit has four little bunnies--Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. Although his sisters are good little rabbits who always listen to their mother, spirited Peter prefers a day of adventure to meekly gathering blackberries. Despite his mother's warnings to stay out of Mr. McGregor's garden, Peter just can't help himself. He's soon in the garden, gaily nibbling away at the carrots. Just as Peter's looking for a bit of parsley, he runs into a furious Mr. McGregor. Will this naughty bunny be able to escape from the vengeful gardener?
Written and beautifully illustrated by Beatrix Potter to entertain the son of her former governess, THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT was originally self-published in 1901 by Potter herself. The story proved so popular that, in 1902, publisher Frederick Warne agreed to print the book, and since that time this classic tale has never been out of print.
