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.

The classic story of a young rabbit who disobeys his mother, and goes exploring in a place he really shouldn't!

Farmer McGregor hoards his food, expecting the beasts of the field - in this case furry little bunnies - to go hungry. Mean man. Full-color illustrations throughout.

It’s a classic picture book, telling the story of a family of mother rabbit and four children rabbits. One of the children rabbits is the adventurous Peter. His adventure into Mr McGregor’s garden takes reader into the actions and the thrills of escaping for his dear life. Will he succeed in escaping? And what would be the cost of his adventure? The text is a bit long but the illustrations are very beautiful to keep readers engaged.

Originally published in 1903, Potter has been loved by generations on both sides of the Atlantic. In this, perhaps her most famous story, she follows the adventuresome Peter Rabbit as he gets into trouble in Mr. McGregor's garden. Potter's exquisite watercolors grace each page of this classic tale.

This is very strange...this comment was written for a children's board book using illustrations by another person but because both books are listed as being by Beatrix Potter the comment comes up for the original book and the obvious remake.

Why would you ever have a Peter Rabbit book not using Beatrix Potter illustrations????

I much prefer the original

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."
