About the Author

Emma Thompson is an Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress who lives in London and Argyll. Her father was Eric Thompson, the man behind The Magic Roundabout, and she remembers him reading Beatrix Potter's tales to her and her sister in his best Dougal voice. "We would always want The Tale of Mr. Tod, which is lengthy and satisfyingly spooky. He would always read The Tale of a Fierce Bad Rabbit, which has about three words on each page. But—thanks to Potter's genius—we were never, ever disappointed."
Eleanor Taylor grew up in Scotland and England, and has a great affinity for the countryside of both places, which is beautifully reflected in the engaging characters and beautiful scenes illustrated in this book.

Emma Thompson did a fantastic job on this chronicle of the continued adventures of Peter Rabbit and friends. She captured the voice of Beatrix Potter beautifully while creating an entirely new set of adventures for readers and listeners, young and old alike. A necessary addition to the library of families with young children, or anyone who loves Peter Rabbit. The accompanying CD is enchanting as well.

My children loved this story. It kept both my 10 year old boy and 5 year old daughter and myself very entertained. It is very funny and the pictures are so wonderful. I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone.
