'Rabbits are always very uppity during the Christmas season, and Peter Rabbit was no exception.'
Emma Thompson continues the adventures of Peter Rabbit in this super new Christmas tale featuring Peter, his comical little cousin Benjamin Bunny, and a character called William.
It is almost Christmas and Peter Rabbit cannot contain his excitement. After he upsets yet another bowl of mincemeat, Mrs Rabbit sends Peter on an errand. He bumps into his cousin, Benjamin Bunny, and a feathered friend who makes an alarming announcement which throws Benjamin and Peter together in a race against time and the scary McGregors.
And so, our Christmas Tale begins...Will the friends' rabbity ingenuity save their friend from an unsavoury end?
Brilliantly told by Emma Thompson and charming illustrated by Eleanor Taylor, Peter Rabbit is back with an hilarious cast of characters. This time our story is set in Beatrix Potter's beloved Lake District.
Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, is a long time admirer of Beatrix Potter's tales. She has a talent for creating engaging narratives with a dry humour similar to Potter's own and is the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale.
