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 person (Sotger) has taken books from my site (globalgrey) (where they are completely free) and which I worked hard on formatting, and is selling them on Kindle, passing them off as their own.

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.

Yep, this seller is selling these ebooks, which are taken without permission from the free site, GlobalGrey. All his books are from that website, and are available there for free.

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.

Beatrix Potter always enchants. And the story is a good one for bedtime particularly if accompanied in bed by a soft squirrel.
