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.

Peter goes lippity, lippity, lippity. . .

Tawny, I looked for a cute velveteen rabbit image, but couldn't find a satisfactory one! I'm going to look for my old V.R. book- I know that one was cute.

Peter is such a naughty bunny - that's what I love the most about this story. He really pushes it. His mummy was so upset!

Beatrice Potter's books are classics. I'm glad you included them in your cute bunny week.

My puppy Ella reminds me of Peter - very naughty, but cute.
