A must have first book for every little reader.

One of Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tales, this mischievous little rabbit has hopped into the heart of generations of book lovers.

Peter Rabbit loves the yummy vegetables he finds in Mr McGregor's garden, the only problem is: Mr McGregor doesn't want Peter to get his paws on his crops!

First published in 1902, this edition has been re-originated so it matches Beatrix's first published work, all those years ago.

Beatrix Potter is one of the world's best-loved children's authors, and has created a vast collection of stories based on her other iconic characters, including Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten.

Her humorous and lively tales are a natural part of childhood, and are the perfect nursery books for all little ones.

Today Beatrix Potter's original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books.

I love this story and that is why I ordered the book for my children. Unfortunately I didn't realize it was pocket edition :( It is very small, and I don't think I can use it for my toddlers... What a waste :(show more

This book is one of the Beatrix Potter's Peter rabbit collection and it is the only one that I have bought due to a study calling. It is a well written book, with good and close to reality illustrations that transmit the care and the taste of the author who demonstrates passion for animals and nature. Its shape gives the opportunity to children and toddlers to hand them and put them in their pockets. In a first look we can realize that all the written text is well thought and aimed to children so they can learn language and also morals. The illustrations are completely adorable and they are draw following the real shape of things. I also had the opportunity to read Tom kitten and I find both a piece of art regarding the text and the illustrations . I hardly recommend this collection, so much for your little baby's and your children :)show more
