A sumptuous gift box containing two Peter Rabbit adventures.
The Original Tale of Peter Rabbit is accompanied by The Further Tale, written by Emma Thompson and includes a signed letter. Both volumes are presented in the traditional small size of Beatrix Potter's original tales with pages edged in a rich purple. Each is cloth-bound in fabric specially commissioned by Timorous Beasties - a cutting edge design company who have created something very special by adding their contemporary twist to these classic characters.
The Further Tale describes what happens when Peter Rabbit stows away in a picnic basket and, before he knows it, finds himself transported to Scotland on the back of a cart! This plucky little rabbit soon finds himself in the middle of a great big, brand new adventure, a long way from home, family and friends.
Emma Thompson writes with a dry humour, similar to Beatrix Potter's own, and is the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale, to be published 110 years after the original.
Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, has a talent for creating engaging narratives with a dry humour similar to Potter's own and is the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale which will be published 110 years after the original. Emma said, "I've always loved Beatrix Potter, as a child and then as a mother and all the years in-between as well. When Mr Rabbit invited me to write a further tale, I was more honoured than I can say. I hope I don't let him or his extraordinary creator down."
