Emma Thompson sends Peter Rabbit to the fair!
A fair has come to the Lake District! And Peter and Benjamin are forbidden to go. Driven by their ever-insatiable curiosity, the rabbits sneak into the fair to have a look-around. Mesmerized by all the activity, the rabbits stand incredibly still, watching. Suddenly, a little girl picks up Peter, declaring him to be her stuffed animal prize! Covered in kisses and stuffed in her bag, Peter Rabbit is taken on his first-ever roller coaster. Benjamin is barely able to rescue Peter, and the two bound home, smelling of the fair.
About the Author
Emma Thompson is an Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress who lives in London and Argyll. Her father was Eric Thompson, the man behind The Magic Roundabout, and she remembers him reading Beatrix Potter’s tales to her and her sister in his best Dougal voice.
Eleanor Taylor grew up in Scotland and England, and has a great affinity for the countryside of both places, which is beautifully reflected in the engaging characters and beautiful scenes illustrated in this book.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book arrived in today's mail, and it is absolutely charming! This one may, if possible, be more engaging than either of the first two. I can't wait to give this to my 3 and 1/2 year-old granddaughter who has almost memorized the other two. She plays the CDs over and over. Emmma, don't stop with this one!
