Pat PeterÕs ears on the cover, crunch some lettuce with Benjamin Bunny, and squeak at a bumblebee with Mrs. Tittlemouse. Mothers and babies will love the simply drawn characters and the soft plush ears on the cover.
The continuing legacy of Beatrix Potter makes it almost impossible to believe that her most well-known work, THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT, was rejected by at least seven publishing companies. Potter originally wrote that story in the form of a letter to the son of her former governess. When it was rejected by publishers, she decided to print a black-and-white version at her own expense. Shortly afterwards, Frederick Warne & Co. reconsidered their rejection and ultimately published the book. THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT was an instant success in 1902 and continues to sell many thousands of copies a year. The classic story has been translated into 30 languages. Potter insisted that when published, this book, and all the titles that followed it, be inexpensive and small enough to fit into a child's hands.
