PETER RABBIT AND THE PUMPKIN PATCH is a gentle Halloween treat that preserves the spirit of Beatrix Potter's much-loved original tale. The shivery parts are rooted in real-world frights -- scary sounds and shadows in the dark -- that resonate with little ones. At the story's end, the rabbits' home glows warmly and brightly, enfolding Peter and Benjamin with comfort and understanding.
The illustrations serve the story well enough, honoring Potter's style although lacking her charm. The subdued palette and quiet tone of the story won't engage all readers, but children who appreciate this style of storytelling or are already familiar with Peter Rabbit will enjoy it. It's a lovely read before they venture out for trick-or-treating.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
