Very cute book. There's few pages and not a lot of writing (I think it's a condensed version of the original story), but has wonderful pop ups for the Potter fan.

ISBN 1569870217 - I mention the ISBN so there's no confusion. With so many copies and retellings, Peter Rabbit is a tough review. Dissing Peter Rabbit is hard for me. I love the story, as I do most of the stories I grew up knowing even before I could read. Having read it recently, I'm not sure that it's the story I loved, or the fact that the big people in my world told it to me.

Peter, disobeying Mom, heads off to go precisely where he was told NOT to go - Mr. McGregor's garden - while his siblings follow directions. After a chase, Peter returns home wet and sick and is dosed with camomile tea. His siblings feast on bread and milk and blackberries.

If nothing else, Peter did, when I was young, and does, to this day, serve as a chance to remind little ones to listen to their mothers - in a slightly horrific way. Failure to do so could land Peter in a pie, like his father. Kids don't seem to notice the horror in that, though, and will enjoy the chase. A better Landoll edition is ISBN 1569870675 which seems to have more text, more detail and slightly better illustrations.

Yes, the little original Beatrix Potter books are sweet, but this larger version is great if you're reading to more than one child at a time. Nicely made, with clear color pictures and large type. Original text & illustrations.
