Mal’s Throwback Thursday!

The Tale of Peter Rabbit (The World of Beatrix Potter: Peter Rabbit)
Beatrix Potter
Warne September 16, 2002  (first published December 16th 1901)
Pages 72

The quintessential cautionary tale, Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor’s garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. He quickly gets in over his head, when he is spotted by farmer McGregor himself. Any child with a spark of sass will find Peter’s adventures remarkably familiar. And they’ll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the “good” sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime.


Peter Rabbit is one of my all time favorite ‘curious’ and ‘mischievous’ rabbits. Potter gave us Peter Rabbit over 100 years ago, needless to say a countless number have enjoyed the beautiful prose along with stunning illustrations.

Peter stands out among his ‘behaved’ siblings – Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail as these two enjoy plucking berries, while naughty Peter is exploring areas mum warned off limits.

My inner rebel admired Peter despite the cost in the end. I enjoyed all 20+ books in this gorgeous series. Young and not so young will find these tails captivating.
