Selected by Julia Eccleshare:
September 2012 Book of the Month. Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, is a long time admirer of Beatrix Potter's tales and this title is inspired by the original title. Thompson 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, published 110 years after the original. Emma was inspired to set the tale in Scotland by her knowledge of Beatrix's childhood holidays there.
