Youngsters love the naughty rabbit who is always getting into scrapes and the beautiful but simple illustrations are timeless masterpieces (Natasha Harding Sun online 2009-12-03)
"The Tale of Peter Rabbit" was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tale. Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format.See all Product description

It is A4 size and just contains pictures to colour - i.e. no words or story.
Also I do not understand why a colouring book about Peter Rabbit should contain drawings of
5 vases - measuring about 5 cms
6 bird nests
7 mice / rats
a boy on a rocking horse
a boy with a yacht
a boy fishing
a boy sledging
a marching man playing a drum
a boy in old-fashioned clothing
a boy delivering papers
an old man in a floating barrel
a lady dressed as a queen
a hen in front of a dressing table
a goat sat at a school desk
an elf running away from a wasp
a knight on horse-back
a running lion.
None of the pictures of Peter Rabbit cover the full page - I've bought this for my grandson's birthday & have not got the time to return it for something else.
The Peter Rabbit Coloring Book: The Tale of Peter Rabbit
All I would say is the books physical size is very small which might not be clear to everyone from the advert. Probably about A6 size.
The storyline is very simple. A few rabbits are trying to find the eggs and the reader is asked to flip the flaps in order to know what the rabbits have found... The plot is just too simple and, apart from that, sometimes the colour of the flaps is similiar to the colour of the backround, which makes things a bit confusing (visually speaking, of couse). Besides, some flaps are not well articulated: see what happens when Mopsy and Cotton-tail and trying to find the eggs behind the bushes: if you flip the flap from the top of the page, it interfeers with the lower flap...
Finally, the pop-up picture that there is in the end of the book is not particularly impressive... (if you've read Mr. Crocs's books you know what I'm talking about).
If you are trying to find a good Ester book, maybe you should take a look at 'Spot's First Easter'...
