Hop into the world of Peter Rabbit and his friends in this charming board book! It’s a wild, autumn evening and the Rabbit family is on their way to get a pumpkin. The woods are windy and dark, but Peter Rabbit is definitely NOT scared. Not even a little bit. But on their walk, there are scary sights, scary sounds, and maybe even a scary somebody out in the woods. Will the Rabbit family meet some unexpected friends in the woods? A sweet story about friends, this book has a gentle message about facing up to fears of the dark with a reassuring ending and beautiful illustrations throughout.
Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1866, at No 2, Bolton Gardens, Kensington, London. She loved nature and drawing as a child. In 1893, Beatrix sat down to write a picture letter to Noel Moore, the five-year-old son of her ex-governess, all about a naughty rabbit called Peter. Noel was ill in bed and so Beatrix wrote to him: “My dear Noel, I don’t know what to write to you, so I shall tell you a story about four little rabbits….” And that’s how The Tale of Peter Rabbit was created. It wasn’t until 1902 that Frederick Warne published what would become one of the most beloved stories in children’s books.
