The delightful rabbity world of Peter Rabbit is shown in a darker hue in Emma Thompson’s witty new story. Peter Rabbit and his cousin Benjamin are running errands to help their mothers to get ready for the great Christmas feast. When they meet William, the proud turkey, he scoffs at the trivial chores which mark their contribution to Christmas. He is to play a much more important role….When Peter and Benjamin realise exactly what that role is they come up with a cunning plan to save their farmyard friend!
The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson
It's almost Christmas and Peter Rabbit cannot contain his excitement. After he upsets yet another bowl of mincemeat, Mrs Rabbit sends Peter on an errand. He bumps into his cousin Benjamin Bunny and a feathered friend, William - a turkey - who makes an alarming announcement which throws Benjamin and Peter together in race against time!
And so our Christmas Tale begins....Will the friends' rabbity ingenuity save their friend from an unsavoury end?
Featuring Peter, his comical little cousin Benjamin Bunny and feathery friend William. Join the trio in Beatrix Potter’s beloved Lake District in a race against time and the scary McGregors.
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.
