Beatrix Potter
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.
From the Publisher
Annotation Mrs. Rabbit has four little bunnies--Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. Although his sisters are good little rabbits who always listen to their mother, spirited Peter prefers a day of adventure to meekly gathering blackberries. Despite his mother's warnings to stay out of Mr. McGregor's garden, Peter just can't help himself. He's soon in the garden, gaily nibbling away at the carrots. Just as Peter's looking for a bit of parsley, he runs into a furious Mr. McGregor. Will this naughty bunny be able to escape from the vengeful gardener? ||Written and beautifully illustrated by Beatrix Potter to entertain the son of her former governess, THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT was originally self-published in 1901 by Potter herself. The story proved so popular that, in 1902, publisher Frederick Warne agreed to print the book, and since that time this classic tale has never been out of print.
Editors Note Adventurous Peter Rabbit disobeys his mother and wanders into Mr. McGregor's garden
