When Peter Rabbit is invited to a house warming party by one of the Three Little Pigs, a behind the scenes adventure begins to unfold. This collection of previously unseen letters from the land of make believe offers us a rare and fresh glimpse into the lives of well loved characters. Along the way, Goldilocks makes a much happier return visit to the Bears house, finds Peter Rabbit's lost jacket, and befriends Little Red Riding Hood.
