The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit

Publisher: Frederick Warne

Oscar-winning actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson has turned her hand to children's books in this new continuation of Peter Rabbit's adventures.

In search of a change of scenery, Peter finds himself venturing beyond the familiar boundaries of Mr McGregor's garden - and accidentally journeying all the way to Scotland in a picnic basket. But on arrival he finds a distant Scotitish relative, Finlay McBurney, waiting to meet him - and  discovers a very unexpected talented when it comes to a game of 'toss the giant radish'.

Thompson has taken inspiration from her knowledge of Beatrix Potter's childhood holidays in Scotland in this new story, which does an impressive job at capturing the spirit of the original. Peter Rabbit is just as mischevious as ever, and Eleanor Taylor's delicate illustrations cleverly re-create the well-known style of this much-loved book. This gentle, charming story is sure to be enjoyed by Beatrix Potter fans old and new.
