Complete Tales of Beatrix Potter

Hardcover, 400 pages
List Price: $40.00 Sale Price: $34.00

This deluxe volume brings all Beatrix Potter's twenty-three Peter Rabbit tales and verses together in one book. The texts are complete and unabridged and all the original illustrations, both color and black and white, are included. The stories are arranged in the order in which they were first published to enable them to be read in the proper sequence for, although each story stands on its own, several are linked together by events and characters. Beatrix Potter's tales were often connected with real places, people or animals so each story has a brief introductory note about its history. The volume also includes four other works by Beatrix Potter which for one reason or another remained unpublished in her lifetime but show new facets of her talent as an illustrator and storyteller.

This latest edition of the Complete Tales was published in 2002 with reoriginated illustrations to celebrate the centenary of the first publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Frederick Warne in 1902. The world of Beatrix Potter, presented here in its entirety, is as appealing now as when it was first created a hundred years ago.

  • Tale of Peter Rabbit

  The Classic Pet Book for Kids
Sincerelyornot of Oregon, 12/15/2011
Beatrix Potter's stories are colorful, fun, unique, and moral. There are basically two ways to add them to your collection en mass, either the cute little white books, or the adorable big complete books. I have fond memories of my mom handing me a little white book to look at while she read aloud from a bigger book to us, so, the little books are still my favorites. The advantage of a bigger book, however, is bigger pictures for little eyes.
