Too big - but still pleasing,
This review is from: The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit (Potter) (Kindle Edition)
My grand-daughter loved this, being a Peter Rabbit fan particularly after visiting Windermere last year. It has captured the spirit of the original and the illustrations are similar enough not to disappoint.
It has obviously been written by someone who loves the tales but is original and fresh enough to be a worthwhile addition to the collection. It has bits to make a small child laugh out loud, and also to feel a shiver of anxiety at Peter's predicament. It is modern enough to please today's children without spoiling the timeless appeal it has for most adults. There are many adults who will be a bit snooty about someone famous writing this sequel, but she was invited to, and has made a good job of it. The illustrator has also tried to remain true to the spirit whilst adding something of her own style.
My only gripe is that it would be lovely to see it in the small,'pocket-sized' edition -but maybe eventually we will.
