The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit

The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit


'Rabbits are very uppity during the Christmas season, and Peter Rabbit was no exception.'

Oscar-winning actress and screenwriter Emma Thompson and illustrator Eleanor Taylor continue the adventures of Peter Rabbit in this board book edition of Peter's Christmas tale.

It's almost Christmas, and Peter Rabbit cannot contain his excitement!

Perhaps he is a little too excited, as he keeps hopping under Mrs Rabbit's feet... So he is sent on some very important Christmas errands where he bumps into his cousin, Benjamin Bunny.

But as we all know, when Peter and Benjamin get together, trouble always follows! When they meet a feathered friend who makes an alarming announcement, it's a race against time to save him from the scary McGregors!
