The quintessential cautionary tale, Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. He quickly gets in over his head, when he is spotted by farmer McGregor himself. Any child with a spark of sass will find Peter's adventures remarkably familiar. And they'll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the "good" sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime.

Her st...
The illustrations are beautiful.
I read this as part of a reading challenge that I'm doing over on BLs I needed a children's book so I decided to go classic and what could be more classic than the cautionary tale of Peter Rabbit. I was fun to read again after so many years and beautifully illustrated. I read these stories when I wa...
Such a gorgeous classic book. Though Peter does look weird without his jacket and shoes, I have to wonder why he was lucky enough to get two jackets and pairs of shoes within a fortnight, and his siblings went without.
