Newcomers and fans of the original Beatrix Potter tales will love this sweet new storybook. Award-winning actress Emma Thompson has taken the ever-mischievousness Peter Rabbit on a new adventure in the first authorized follow-up to the Peter Rabbit tales.
This time Peter is looking for a change of scene, and he finds it in the Scottish hills among kilt-wearing, vegetable-throwing bunnies. Let the Games begin! Of course, Peter also manages to devour more than his share of vegetables and picnics along the way!
Eleanor Taylor’s soft illustrations are warm, inviting and reminiscent of the originals. This beautifully illustrated hardcover comes with a CD recording, read by the author. This new story will undoubtedly charm a new generation of readers.
