The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit- Emma Thompson

 
Written by actress Emma Thompson and illustrated by Eleanor Taylor, The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit is a sympathetic addition to any Beatrix Potter fans collection.

Available in a glorious hardback with sparkling snowflakes on the cover, it is visually attractive and the story doesn't disappoint either.  Peter and Benjamin are determined to help William the turkey avoid the fate of their father and devise a plan to foil their old enemy Mr McGregor...

I loved the illustrations - inspired by Potter's style without being a direct copy.  Overall this is a quality children's book, a rich tale with glorious artwork.  A delight!

The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit is out now.

8.5/10

With thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
