THE SPECTACULAR TALE OF PETER RABBIT is just that: a spectacular tale. This charming original does what it set out to do: It continues the Peter Rabbit saga more than 100 years after Beatrix Potter first enchanted readers with her creations. Thompson"s quaint vocabulary and musical language is complemented by Eleanor Taylor's watercolor artwork. Together they create a style and tone reminiscent of Potter's classic tales and tell a story that is engagingly humorous and unique.

Kids will relate to the curious, lovable little bunny and will want to read more about his mischievous adventures. And, if they haven't already read them, they'll want to hear all the old stories, as well.
