One of Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tales, this mischievous little rabbit has hopped into the heart of generations of book lovers. Peter Rabbit loves the yummy vegetables he finds in Mr McGregor's garden, the only problem is: Mr McGregor doesn't want Peter to get his paws on his crops!

Beatrix Potter's famous tale of a naughty squirrel who loses his tail is as popular today as it was when it was first published over 100 years ago.

See what happens when Old Brown, the terrifying owl guardian of the island decides he has had enough of silly Nutkin's cheekiness! Ouch!!
The Tailor of Gloucester was first published in 1903 and tells the story of a poor tailor trying to survive in his freezing workshop over a hard winter. He has a terribly important commission to complete for the Mayor of Gloucester's wedding on Christmas Day but is ill and tired, and before long is running out of food and thread, as well as time! How will he possibly complete the beautiful coat and embroidered waistcoat? Luckily, there lives in the dresser, some very kind and very resourceful mice who set about helping the poor tailor with his work. Not only are they exceedingly helpful, but they are also, luckily, far far too clever for the tailor's sly cat, Simpkin.
Peter Rabbit's cousin, Benjamin Bunny, has been a very popular character since this book's first publication in 1904.

Even more frightening, is what happens to the two pesky bunnies when Old Mr Benjamin Bunny finds out what they have been up to!
When two naughty little mice discover the door to the beautiful dolls' house ajar, they just have to tiptoe inside and have a look. The temptation to try the delicious looking food in the dining room proves too great however, and chaos ensues when they discover that it will not come off the plates!

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!

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.
