After knocking over the bowl of mincemeat for the third time, Peter rabbit is sent away by his mother to fetch a cup of suet. In the forest he comes across his cousin, Benjamin Bunny, who has also been sent away from the burrow to fetch some raisins.
Just as the two are taking some time out to play rabbit cricket, gorgeously feathered William the Turkey struts past. When he proudly tells them that he will be the guest of honour at Mr. and Mrs. McGregor`s Christmas dinner this year, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny suspect the worst. How can they save poor William from ending up as the McGregor`s holiday roast? A good idea is desperately needed!
This wonderful illustrated book is suitable for children over 4 years old.
A smart and likeable rabbit like Peter hurls himself willingly into adventures and children take delight in this. How nice, that writer Emma Thompson and illustrator Eleanor Taylor were able to capture the spirit of the old stories and paintings of one of Beatrix Potter`s most famous characters. So we can look forward to Peter`s coming adventures.
Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, is a long time admirer of Beatrix Potter’s tales. She has a talent for creating engaging narratives with a dry humour similar to Potter’s own and is the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale, to be published 110 years after the original.
