The Tale of Peter Rabbit
The Tale of Peter Rabbit | Beatrix Potter
37 posts | 85 read | 2 to read
Peter Rabbit and his family live just outside Mr. McGregor's farm. Peter's always hungry. Even though his mother has warned him never to go to the farm, Peter decides to slip in anyways and eat the delicious vegetables he sees growing there. Mr. McGregor spies the thief and starts up a wild chase. Will roly-poly Peter be able to get away? This unabridged version of Beatrix Potter's childhood classic is taken from the 1902 edition published in the UK, with original illustrations by the author.

Day 28: #favorite
The Tale of Peter Rabbit is not only my favorite tale but he is also my favorite character. (This is considering Winnie The Pooh holds a close tie with him, they are both so dear to me) the story is darling and i can‘t help but love Peter and his mischievous ways.

From someone living in an area with one of the shortest growing seasons in the contiguous US, I find that my sympathies have shifted as I‘ve aged. Poor Mr. McGregor! At least our spring has finally sprung.

I went to Hill Top yesterday where Beatrix Potter lived. Everything has been preserved and left as it was when she lived there. Such a beautiful place.

After The Laws of the Skies I went with the May pick of #ChildrensClassicRead2019 to soothe me but I should have known better. Potter's beautiful artwork aside, this is kind of a dark story about being out in the world & suffering the consequences of having a healthy curiosity & appetite. The world is full of danger & evil 😭 I felt like I was in the same surrealist fever dream, only now in the English countryside. Stay inside & read, Peter 🐰😰

DivineDiana Never thought about the lessons of this story. 🤔 Good advice! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks I always think of Beatrix Potter as a writer of fairy tales, in a way. They have that darker edge/lesson wrapped up in cozy paper. 4mo

The chocolate bunny that the hubs put in my Easter basket had a cute little copy of this book in it, so I decided to reread it. My grandma used to read it to me every year before Easter. I can still here her singing “here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail. Hippity hoppity Easter‘s on it‘s way” 💖🐇💐

I think I‘m physically incapable of leaving a bookstore without purchasing books. I had an hour and a half to kill between the time my train arrived in Cary and my lunch date with friends, so where better to spend that time than the local B&N. It has been completely rearranged since the last time I was there, but I still found a few books. And a Peter Rabbit & a PR tote (with a tail!). 🐰😱 #bookhaul #nortoncriticaledition #sohocrime

8little_paws How was your train ride? I travel Amtrak regularly. 5mo
DGRachel @8little_paws There were a couple nit-picky things I didn‘t like, but overall it was a really positive experience and it was so much more relaxing than driving 7 hours round trip by myself. I can definitely see myself taking the train again and I may even go to Cary more often because of the convenience. 😊 5mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel let me know when you are in Cary again! I would love to see you! 5mo

DGRachel @Graciouswarriorprincess I will! 😍 I‘d have said something today, but I didn‘t know I was going to have a hunk of time before meeting my other friends until last night when my friend suggested the train. 5mo
Lcsmcat I love Amtrak, and the Cary station is my “home station” even though I live in another town. 5mo
DGRachel @Lcsmcat The Cary station is beautiful. So bright and airy. I miss Cary a lot. I lived there for 5 1/2 years. Charlotte is nice, but I would rather be back in Cary. 5mo
batsy That tote 😍 5mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel Understandable! Next time! And I agree with @Lcsmcat that Cary is lovely. 😀 5mo
DGRachel @batsy It has a fluffy tail on the other side!! 😍🐰😍 5mo

The Tale of Peter Rabbit in Hieroglyphic ☺ Has English notations on the pages where the exact translation is not possible. This one says Line 4 Blackberries were unknown in ancient Egypt and have been replaced with 'sweet fruit' #### (benriwt), which commonly refers to dates. ❤❤ So cool ☺

We saw Peter Rabbit and it was totally dumb and only vaguely had anything to do with the book, but whatever! I liked it! It was silly and cute. I went in with low expectations and didn‘t feel a need to be a purist. Anyone else see it?

mom2bugnbee My kids & I are looking forward to it. To the haters, I say: how can it stay pure to the book when the book is 20 (small) pages long? 😉 2y

I wanted to try out my Overdrive app, and this was one of the first available titles to borrow. (probably because of the movie coming out soon.) Anyway, I‘ve always loved these little stories! Peter is so naughty and so lovable!

#riotgrams #bookishgoods I was going to go with my Harry Potter goods, but then some of those are movies related and not books so I changed my mind to share some of my favourite things I own - bookish postcards! It basically is a mixture of two favourite thogs: books and postcards ( yes I collect postcards and me and my friends have a big tradition of sending each other postcards) so nothing better than postcards related to my favourite reads!

I found this at Toy Safari in Alameda, CA and just had to buy it. It's from 1995 and had never even been opened (I quickly tainted that). It's a game that is a replica of a board game Beatrix Potter designed in 1904. I was the BIGGEST Beatrix Potter fan as a child. If I can successfully convert my baby niece into Beatrix Potterhood, she can inherit this in a few years.

Beatrix Potter is one of my fave children's authors. I love her stories but I think I love her illustrations even more! Tonight when my little girl couldn't sleep, I decided to read The Tale of Peter Rabbit to her for the first time. She's now falling asleep. 💤

Peter was not very well during the evening. His mother put him to bed, and made some chamomile tea: "One table-spoonful to be taken at bedtime."
