Listen to the story of Jemima Puddle-duck, who was annoyed because the farmer's wife would not let her hatch her own eggs.
Jemima Puddle-Duck is determined to be a good mother and hatch her own eggs so one day, she sets out from the farm wearing a shawl and bonnet to find a nice quiet place in the woods to nest.
It’s not long before Jemima happens upon a smart, sandy-whiskered, foxy gentleman who offers her a nice comfortable bed of feathers in his summer house. Jemima thinks herself very lucky but perhaps the foxy gentleman is not all he appears to be.
One of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators, Beatrix Potter created some of the most recognisable characters in English literature, including Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and Benjamin Bunny
Today Beatrix Potter's original twenty-three tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, sound books, christening gifts and more. These original editions bring the world of Beatrix Potter to life just as readers have enjoyed them for generations. The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck, the twelfth book to be published, is number nine in this series of charming stories.

“Not impressed”

Wanted to find another book like the Run Peter Run book from the Naturally Better range. It is beautifully illustrated and is my daughters favorite book. Unfortunately Jemima was very old fashioned, with the pictures... More

My favourite story of the Potter range of a simple duck and her wish to have chicks of her own. The art style is beautiful and elegant. We’ve picked up Potter clothing for our little girl and plan to read these too... More
