Beatrix Potter was a keen observer of nature. In fact, it was one of her many jobs. She was a botanist and conservationist but she was best known for the childrens books she wrote more than 100 years ago. The English author and illustrator’s most notable character was a furry little bunny that goes by the name Peter Rabbit. Beatrix Potter wrote many stories about this lovable character and all have been collected in a 192-page book called Peter Rabbit’s Giant Storybook.
Fourteen of Beatrix Potter’s most popular stories have been included in this classic collection of tales, including Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, and, of course, The Tales of Peter Rabbit. Readers will follow these playful characters in stories that are sure to delight!
Peter Rabbit’s Giant Storybook is a 12-by-12 inch oversized hardcover book that features high-quality reproductions of Beatrix Potter’s original watercolor and ink illustrations with all the charm of her original books. Although the format of the author’s books may hold sentimental and practical value (because little hands can more easily hold little books), this much larger book has an appeal of its own. It’s the perfect size for an adult to read while their little bunny is snuggled on the lap of the reader. The book is about 2 feet wide when fully opened with several illustrations on each page, which draws children into the stories about Peter Rabbit, Tom Kitten, Benjamin bunny, and all the rest of Beatrix Potter’s most cherished characters.
Beatrix Potter has been a favorite author of kids for more than a century.
