About the Author

Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.
A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.

Format: Hardcover
This is my favourite of all the BP books. Nutkin is an exquisite creation based apparently on someone with Tourette's that she saw on a train (he probably also had co-morbid ADHD). His fabulously defiant doggerel is probably over he heads of most kids but his absolute non cooperation with the customs and disregard for the deference of the other squirrels means he inevitably edges closer to confrontation with the magnificently maleficent Old Brown.

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, Squirrel Nutkin and Jemima Puddle-Duck among others and have 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.

This book is about a squirrel who is a very bad character, and he has very bad manners.I would recommend this book to anyone over 5yrs old. There are pictures on every page and they are very colourful.

The story is great, of course, but the pre-flight (format) of it is awful. Completely messed up the story line/timing. This is better in physical book format

Just a lovely little book well produced but badly packed in a huge box with other items but no protection for the sleeve - managed to clean off some marks.

My favourite tale of Beatrix Potter's. It's a shame it's missing all of its beautiful illustrations! For that I can only give it 4 out of 5.
