Mr. McGregor has two things on his mind when he sees Peter in his garden. One is the safety of his lettuces; the other is rabbit pie. Peter was carefully told not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, but some little bunnies have to learn things the hard way.
Beatrix Potter's classic story has been lovingly placed at the center of this creative effort, and David Jorgensen has given Peter and his family wonderfully droll and expressive character and charm in his illustrations. On the accompanying audiocaasette, Meryl Streep explores all of the drame, humor, and subtlety of the narrative, and none of its potential to entertain and teach has been left untapped. Musician/composer Lyle Mays has coordinated and augmented the work of both illustrator and narrator with a score that unifies and enlivens the whole enterprise. The combined artistry of the contributors results in a new and enriching experience that will be loved by all. The Tale of Peter Rabbit was awarded a Grammy nomination for best recording for children in 1988.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Peter Rabbit rarely does as he is told. What a naughty rabbit Peter is! The classic Tale of Peter Rabbit is retold simply for young children and published in a sturdy board book format.

This is very strange...this comment was written for a children's board book using illustrations by another person but because both books are listed as being by Beatrix Potter the comment comes up for the original book and the obvious remake.

Why would you ever have a Peter Rabbit book not using Beatrix Potter illustrations????

I much prefer the original
