Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were—
Flopsy,
Mopsy,
Cotton-tail, 
and Peter.
 

Shhh, come quietly into Mr McGregor’s garden and see what you will find there. 

Peter Rabbit is a very mischievous rabbit indeed and when his mother goes out for the day, he slips under the gate and straight into Mr McGregor’s vegetable patch. Peter might be a cunning little rabbit but he finds that there is more waiting for him in the garden than he bargained for. 

The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the original classic by Beatrix Potter, first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tale. Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format. 

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.

“Dated...”

I know this is regarded as a classic and I may cause offence to those who remember it fondly but it is so dated for todays young children. In its favour are the charming illustrations but I find they are not enough to... More

“A wonderful story to retell”

My mum taught me to read with the Beatrix Potter stories and Peter Rabbit was one of my favourites. Unlike the older review above, I find it not heavily moralistic at all just like one of the old aesops fables - Peter... More
