Peter Rabbit Tales – A Pumpkin For Peter by Potter, Beatrix
ISBN 9780241358757 – Warne – Penguin UK: Board book 16 pp – Sep 2019
Beatrix Potter is one of the world’s best-loved children’s authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902) she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs Tiggy-winkle, Mr Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood.
A source of inspiration was the Lake District where she lived for the last thirty years of her life as a farmer and conservationist.
A reassuring, Peter Rabbit story about facing fears of the dark.
It’s a wild, autumnal afternoon and the Rabbit family are on their way to collect a pumpkin.
Cotton-tail, Flopsy and Mopsy might be scared of the stormy trees, and the sound of owls, and the snap of a twig, but Peter is definitely not scared. Not even a litle bit.
This charming Halloween tale has a reassuring message about facing fears of the dark. Eleanor Taylor’s humorous illustrations of Beatrix Potter’s well-loved characters mirror young children’s early experiences.
