The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson, Illustrated by Eleanor Taylor
 
Rating: 4/5 Stars
 
About the Book: Peter Rabbit can't stay away from adventure! This time he travels beyond the McGregor's garden and encounters new friends and challenges.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says:  I was nervous when I heard there would be a new Peter Rabbit book, but Emma Thompson captures the essence of the original tales perfectly. It's a fun, delightful tale that fits Peter wonderfully and I really enjoyed it. It has a sly sense of humor. The illustrations are beautiful and look just like the original Peter Rabbit tales. A very nice addition to any collection. Perfect for Peter Rabbit fans new and old alike!

  1. NO! I couldn't read Return to the Hundred Acre Wood and I can't read this one. Some things are sacred. :)
