Celebrate Halloween with your favorite rabbit!
In this completely original tale, Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin Bunny once again dare to sneak into Mr. McGregor's garden to nibble on his ripe, autumn vegetables. But noises in the garden frighten the bunnies, who take off for home--without a single bite of pumpkin! The eerie, but promising glow of a jack-o-lantern greets them at home, and the family of bunnies throw a little party with pumpkin seeds for dessert!
Beatrix Potter was born on July 28, 1886, in Kensington, London. She--an author, illustrator, natural scientist, and conservationist--is best known for her imaginative children's literature that celebrated British country life.
Potter originally wrote The Tale of Peter Rabbit for her ex-governess' five-year-old son who was very ill. From such a simple beginning, the story has sold more than 40 million copies, and, as a result, Beatrix Potter has become one of the most acclaimed children's book authors of all time.
