SummaryAdd a Summary
Since the THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT, originally published in 1903, Potter has been a favorite of toddler, pre-school, kid, pre-teen, high school and adult sets. Heck; I didn't discover her 'til college, and was like, Where have you been all my life? Was I raised by wolves? Her ageless stories are enjoyable, but her delicate watercolors are what really grabbed me. PETER RABBIT chronicles the love/hate relationship of Peter and Mr. McGregor, a farmer suffering with separation anxiety.
Originally published in 1903, THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT (Dover, $1.25) has been loved by generations on both sides of the Atlantic. In this, perhaps her most popular story, she follows the adventuresome Peter Rabbit as he gets into trouble in Mr. McGregor's garden. Class warfare, anyone? The author's exquisite watercolors grace each page of this classic.

First he ate some lettuces and some French beans; and then he ate some radishes; and then, feeling rather sick, he went to look for some parsley."
