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.

Read an Excerpt

Once upon a time there were three little kittens, and their names were Mitten, Tom Kitten, and Moppet.

They had dear little fur coats of their own; and they tumbled about the doorstep and played in the dust.

This book has so many errors it is not even funny. Also They say that the rats grab the dough and butter for the cat pudding before the cat falls into thier den, and repeat that they go grab that dough and pudding again for the cat pudding after the cat falls into thier den. And thier is lots of random simbols including,:;@#$1368'$& and other random words in thier and mispellings. I suggest reading the regular hard cover with pages you can flip with your hands.

It's ok. It's kind of hard to read because of it having the miss spelling problem, but at least the book is free. The story is short but still, i like the books beatrix potter makes. I once saw a movie about this book before. It was a cartoon, but i really liked it. Maybe i will be able to find it. This book does have nice pictures in it. So that helps the book. - Nicole
