Peter Rabbit – #AtoZfavbooks May Challenge – Day 16

Peter RabbitPeter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter …

… Day 16 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.

Peter Rabbit: a beautiful classic children’s book by one of the first authors to choose the self-publishing route, Beatrix Potter. She wrote so many books but I’ve always loved Peter Rabbit.

Generations of children have enjoyed the tale of Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter. When Mrs Rabbit tells her children to be good and not get into mischief while she’s out, “Peter, who was very naughty, ran straight away to Mr. McGregor’s garden, and squeezed under the gate!”

It’s funny how much children like to read about characters who get into trouble. Peter has enthralled readers since it’s publication in 1902. It definitely belongs on every child’s bookshelf.
