Peter slips into McGregor's gardenBeatrix Potter's first and most beloved story.

Peter, the most mischievous of old Mrs. Rabbit's bunnies, sneaks off to steal vegetables from Mr. McGregor's garden.

Never mind that he was warned not to. Never mind that his father was caught and "put in a pie" by Mrs. McGregor.

Peter manages to sneak in, but that's the easy part. He overeats and grows a bit nauseous. Looking for parsley to settle his stomach, he stumbles upon the deadly old Mr. McGregor.

McGregor gives chase, Peter manages to hide, and McGregor gives up, but Peter doesn't know how to get out of the garden. When finally he finds the gate, he manages to slip under ahead of the old man, leaving behind his new clothes in the process.

(If you think he's learned his lesson, you'll also want to read The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.)

I have been looking for high quality Beatrix Potter coloring pages for several years now and my search is over!  THANK YOU for the beautiful books!!  These little books are just the right size for little hands and the line drawings are uncluttered and simply beautiful.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit March 24, 2012
Reviewer: Melonie L. from Cold Brook, NY United States  
My girls love to use their imaginations to make up the colors in their story books.  This one is not only a classic, but one that still has the important message of obedience that every Mom wants her children to learn and to follow.  Thank you for providing it.  It provides hours of entertainment and learning.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit March 24, 2012
Reviewer: Jackie from ,  
Peter always reminded me of myself when I was young.  I was always getting into trouble just as Peter did.  I think that was why I loved the story.  I know my children enjoyed "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" but they were the ones who always said that Peter was being bad.  To me he was just being adventurous.  
But it does not matter if you say Peter was Bad or Adventurous; this book has a moral that is perfect for teaching children that they need to be careful.  If they are they are not going to end up like Peter--in trouble once again.

The first gem from Beatrix Potter March 2, 2012
Reviewer: Jane Finch from , United Kingdom  
When I was young  I related to the family, Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter, and their mother.  Immediately I wanted to know what had happened to father.  Then a little further we find out he had an accident in Mr. McGregor s garden.  That garden became a place of mystery to me.  Why was it such a dangerous place?
 Treasures galore are to be found  well, treasures to a rabbit, anyway.  But then comes the big bad wolf oh, sorry, Mr. McGregor  and goodness me what a time of it Peter has trying to escape from him.
Of course reading now as an adult I can quite understand that Mr. McGregor was trying to protect his garden, and when you have been on your hands and knees tending your precious vegetables the appearance of a rabbit who LOVES vegetables is pretty annoying.  But as a child I was most definitely on Peter s side.  And I remember that whenever I saw a rabbit in the wild, I called him Peter Rabbit.  This book was the start of my journey with Beatrix Potter.
