Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
Since the early 1900s, Beatrix Potter's twenty-three little volumes featuring rabbits, mice, frogs, and other creatures have delighted children. Her first story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, was an instant success. While Potter's clothed animals appear precious, the characters are in fact quite mischievous and get into scrapes that children can easily identify with. The timeless quality of Potter's stories ensures that her books will entertain generations of readers to come.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
