When Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated The Tale of Peter Rabbit, she had little idea how popular this story and the 22 which followed it would immediately become. Each of the 23 Tales has reprinted over 100 times, and in the 80 or so years since their initial publication, much of the delicate brushwork and detail has disappeared from the pictures. To remedy this, Frederick Warne has located Beatrix Potters original artwork, and photographed it to produce these wonderful new edition of her stories.
Thanks to modern printing techniques, her illustrations appear just as freshly as when they were first painted, and confirm Beatrix Potters place as the most celebrated childrens artist of the century. Peters mischievous cousin, Benjamin Bunny, persuades him to go back to Mr. McGregors garden to retrieve the clothes he lost there. On board pages.
