The World of Beatrix Potter
The Tale of Peter Rabbit is one of the most delightful children's stories and Potter's illustrations are unforgettable. Troublemaker Peter Rabbit loses his clothes while invading Mr. McGregor's garden (the same garden in which his father was caught and made into a pie...yikes...) and recruits his cousin to help him find them in the companion story, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. Peter Rabbit ends with a bit of chamomile tea, but Benjamin Bunny's outcome is slightly less satisfactory- a whipping for two cute bunny hoodlums.
