From a frightening journey out of Mr. McGregor’s garden to his fir-tree home with Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail, Peter Rabbit leads the most risky and adventurous life of the bunnies. After losing his shoes and new blue jacket with brass buttons, he narrowly escapes his demise and makes it home sickly, but safely.

This edition is a must-have for every child’s library.
