5.0 out of 5 stars Jeremy Fisher - the fisherman's fisherman 19 April 2003
By MATTHEW
Format:Hardcover
Probably the book that creates the imaginative stimulus for most anglers to go fishing for the first time. Potter's timeless illustrations detail the soft country lighting of the river bank where Jeremy the frog goes fishing for minnows, setting the idyllic scene that all fisherman seek. The tranquility of the river counterposed against the unknown of what lies beneath - particularly the rising monster trout that almost ends Jeremy's fishing trip and life - shows that Potter realised that nature's dark side can only be softened by the welcome environment of the home and friends as evidenced in so much of Potter's writing with Jeremy returning home safe. The anxiety this generates in five year old is as profound as any modern slasher video. This sense of home being where the heart is that Potter referred to again and again as with Peter the Rabbit's exhausted collapse on his mother's floor after his adventures in Mr. McGregor's garden. Potter was a genius at humanising animals without taking an overtly sentimental tone. She taps into the childlike but not childish sensations of home, the fear of life beyond the doorstep, belonging, comradeship and belief in the pastoral theme of Old England not seen since Dicken's Pickwick Papers. Jeremy Fisher is a story that hold true to old values with illustrations that live longer than the narrative. A book to cherish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still One of the Best Children's Stories 11 May 2007
By J. Chippindale TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The Tale of Peter Rabbit was written in 1900 and has stood the test of time very well. Generations of children have loved the story of Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck among others and treasured the books of Beatrix Potter. It is up there among the greats of children's literature with Wind in the Willows, The Water Babies, Peter Pan, Treasure Island and many others.

In these days of computer games and electronic toys of one kind or another, books sadly are sometimes not as high on the list as they were a few years ago, perhaps that is why literacy in schools is not all that it could be. Personally as a child books were always my first love and Christmas would not have been the same without a Rupert annual.

Stories that involve animals as the main characters in books always seem to fascinate young children and Peter Rabbit has always been up there with the best. Next time you have to buy a present for a child, or even want to treat one of your younger grandchildren for no particular reason. Instead of looking for the latest DVD why not buy them a book. Peter Rabbit is a good one to start with.

Mr. Matthew has written a really good review, do check it out!

For those over-anxious parents who are averted to stories about naughty, or, shall I say mischievous children (and hence have been turned off by, say, "Peter Rabbit"), we only have a respectable country squire here, with his equally respectable gentleman friends. The excitment from this book then comes not from escapade but mishaps, and rather coulters of fortune they are too! The intensity of the dark undercurrent of the real world, even when all is seemingly idyllic, is realized uncompromisingly in this tale. If you are an over-protective parent, then the realism with which Beatrix Potter conjures that impression of danger will be too much for your children.

It is easy to see why Mr. Jeremy Fisher should have become one of the more successful franchise in the World of Peter Rabbit. I do not take to the idea of a frog being my character, but his realistic anthromorphing as a respectable, vivacious squire who leads a peaceful life with polite and agreeable friends and the excitement of that fateful day this tale focuses on endears him to me notwithstanding.
