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.

While the dolls are away, two curious, naughty mice explore the dolls' house and steal their furniture.

    Young ones love this book!

    I used to read this to my nephew over and over again - he couldn't get enough. I have to say the story makes me laugh as well - the description of two naughty mice breaking into a dollhouse, only to become angry that the food on the dining room table is just pretend. The illustrations are great. It is a welcome addition to my own child's library.

    :(

    Well what do you want for free? CORRECT ENGLISH? I think b and n was in too much of a rush to get free titles to check how the words came out. If you dont mind skipped words and weird letters this is the right book for you.
