Product Description
Product Description
The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the original classic by Beatrix Potter. 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. It tells the story of a very mischievous rabbit and the trouble he encounters in Mr McGregor's vegetable garden! 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. 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, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs. Tiggy-winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. With revenue from the sales of her books, Beatrix Potter bought a farm - Hill Top - in the English Lake District, where she later became a farmer and prize-winning sheep breeder. She launched the now vast merchandise programme by patenting the very first Peter Rabbit doll in 1903. The product range continues to grow today with licences around the world including baby clothing and bedding, nursery decor products and collectables. Upon her death, Beatrix Potter left 14 farms and over 4000 acres of Lake District farmland to the National Trust so that the place that she loved would remain undeveloped and protected for future generations to enjoy. Today Beatrix Potter's original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books. The Tale of Peter Rabbit is number one in Beatrix Potter's series of 23 little books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lousy Book, August 29, 2017
Now, don't get me wrong, I love Beatrix Potter and her stories. My mom gave them to me when I was little. So, when I had a little one of my own how could I resist? I got this book for his first birthday, but when I read it out loud I was disappointed. While the pictures turned out vibrant, it's a very cut-down story of the beloved Peter Rabbit with a chewed-up moralless rendition of the original story. C'mon guys, I totally understand you have to squeeze a story onto less pages for board books. But this was a sloppy way to go about it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just awful, March 25, 2016
Is this a joke? Amazon you've failed me here! No way would this book ever be found in an actual store because no one would buy it if given the chance to see it in real life first. Tiny, so tiny in fact it's hard to turn the pages. Terrible quality overall, super thin pages, and horribly pixelated, faint images. The worst quality book I've ever bought hands down.

1.0 out of 5 stars It looks like someone photo-copied it, January 19, 2017
DO NOT ORDER THE PAPERBACK. I wish I had read the reviews, but I guess I was in a hurry. I thought this would be a decent rendition of the beloved children's book "The Tale of Peter Rabbit." This is a joke. It looks like someone photo-copied it. The images aren't even centered on the page. It's only a little bigger than the size of my iPhone. So sad. So sad that amazon would even allow this to be sold.
