Two British icons, both alike in literary greatness...
Peter Rabbit and William Shakespeare, two British literary legends from across the spectrum, collide in this special edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit, featuring a cover design inspired by the Bard.
Beatrix Potter was a great fan of Shakespeare's plays, committing many of them to memory, and his influence can be seen in her much-loved children's books.
A celebration of the rich literary heritage of this sceptred isle, and commemorating the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, this book is a must for enthusiasts of the playwright and the rabbit alike.
