When Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated The Tale of Peter Rabbit, she had little idea how popular this story and the 22 which followed it would immediately become. Each of the 23 Tales has reprinted over 100 times, and in the 80 or so years since their initial publication, much of the delicate brushwork and detail has disappeared from the pictures.

Overview

When Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated The Tale of Peter Rabbit, she had little idea how popular this story and the 22 which followed it would immediately become. Each of the 23 Tales has reprinted over 100 times, and in the 80 or so years since their initial publication, much of the delicate brushwork and detail has disappeared from the pictures.

To remedy this, Frederick Warne has located Beatrix Potter's original artwork, and photographed it to produce these wonderful new edition of her stories. Thanks to modern printing techniques, her illustrations appear just as freshly as when they were first painted, and confirm Beatrix Potter's place as the most celebrated children's artist of the century.

Read an Excerpt

One morning a little rabbit sat on a bank. He pricked his ears and listened to the trit-trot, trit-trot of a pony.

A gig was coming along the road; it was driven by Mr. McGregor, and beside him sat Mrs. McGregor in her best bonnet.

Of course the delight of this classic tale is unchanged, but the size of the illustrations are too small. Reading a Beatrix Potter book means being enveloped in her colored drawings. Although I marvel that I can download this gem from my childhood I'd still like to see the pictures enlarged.

The Tale of Benjamin Bunny is a delightful adventure with Benjamin Bunny and his cousin Peter Cottontail. Mr Macgregors' garden beckons the young bunnies, trouble erupts, and the excitement begins. Great story and illustrations for any young children.

My grandsons, two and four, were attentive but not as captivated by this Nook Book as by many others. They didn't particularly relate to the story.
