The fourth title in a new series of board book stories for the very young set in Peter Rabbit's world. Peter can't sleep. He's too big for his bedroom with his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail. But is he big enough for his own room? The simple tales mirror important early experiences and emotions of young children through the eyes of Beatrix Potter's most well-loved characters, while Eleanor Taylor's illustrations are filled with charm, warmth and humour.
From the creator of Peter Rabbit comes the tale of a serious, well-behaved young black cat, who leads a daring double life defeating vile villains. Beatrix Potter created some of the world's most beloved characters, and they will be coming to life in a movie slated for Spring 2018. And this book, written in 1941 but never illustrated, introduces the charming Kitty-in-Boots, who has been imagined by Quentin Blake. When Miss Kitty sneaks out to go hunting in her beautiful boots she gets herself into all sorts of scrapes, but on this particular night she meets the foxiest hunter of them all--Mr. Tod! This utterly entertaining tale is filled with mistaken identities, devious villains, and even an appearance from Peter Rabbit.
The perfect gift for a Christening or first birthday to introduce the smallest readers to the magical world of Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit. Beatrix Potter's work reflects her interest in animals, natural history and the environment. She liked to imagine her characters in her favourite, natural places, so she created a special world for Peter Rabbit.Before the full-colour edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit was published by Frederick Warne & Co., Potter arranged a private printing of the book with Strangeways & Sons in 1901. It was illustrated with black-and-white line drawings, and it is these illustrations which have been adapted for this special gift edition of the tale.Potter's drawings have been combined with a variety of patterns that take inspiration from the natural world in which the tale is set. The botanical patterns reflect Potter's illustrations, and the soft, natural palette and block-printing effect refers back to the Golden Age of children's illustrated books.
