Overview

To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.

The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, The Tale of Peter Rabbit restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before.

Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.

Ginger, a yellow tom-cat, and Pickles, a terrier, run a very popular general store but soon run into trouble because they give everyone unlimited credit.

Read an Excerpt

Once upon a time there was a village shop. The name over the window was "Ginger and Pickles".

It was a little small shop just the right size for Dolls - Lucinda and Jane Doll-cook always brought their groceries at Ginger and Pickles.

    I would recommend that anyone purchasing a copy of Beatrix Potte

    I would recommend that anyone purchasing a copy of Beatrix Potter's Ginger and Pickles look elsewhere. This particular book is merely a cheap run-off of a public domain product, and it's not even the right product. Despite bearing the title Ginger and Pickles, it seems to be a collection of unrelated Beatrix Potter material, and a low quality collection at that. Spare yourself some inevitable disappointment and avoid purchasing this edition.

    "Um, okay," Uriti says, then picks up her nest and drags it out.
