From the Publisher:
This shaped board book in a large trim size is the perfect way to introduce young children to the wonderful world of Beatrix Potter. Complete with original illustrations and simplified text from each tale, children will delight in sharing the adventures of Peter Rabbit.
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.
