ISBN 1569870675 - I previously reviewed another Landoll edition (ISBN 1569870217) of this book and found it sadly lacking. This edition is another story... the same story, of course, just better! Also, I notice that an earlier reviewer mentions Board Book pages - this is a hardcover, most suitable to children whose little fingers can handle the pages. It's also 24 pages long - just long enough for beginning readers. Just to help keep them all straight!

Father still ends up in a pie, Peter still disobeys his mother and goes into Mr MacGregor's garden. The chase in this book is better written, with a mention of Peter's cousin, Benjamin Bunny, as a nice way to introduce your children to other Potter books. Peter still ends up barely escaping, losing all his clothes to Mr MacGregor, and arriving home sick.

This copy has more detail, and much nicer illustrations. Peter, when caught up in the gooseberry net, or with a tear in his eye as he tries to ask directions of the mouse, are wonderfully done. I'd never have thought there could be such a difference between two copies of the same book, but you learn something new every day - unlike Peter, who just can't seem to learn and has lost his second set of clothing in a fortnight (nice detail)!
