The Further Tales of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson

Join Peter and other familiar Beatrix Potter friends in brand new adventures! In The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit, Peter ventures beyond Mr McGregor's garden all the way to Scotland where he meets his distant cousin Finlay McBurney and takes part in some Highland rabbit Games involving a very, very large radish. In The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit, Peter and his cousin Benjamin Bunny must step in to save their friend William - a turkey - from ending his Christmas on Mr McGregor's table! Finally, when a carnival comes to town in The Spectacular Tale of Peter Rabbit, Peter gets swept up in all the fun of the fair and finds that little girls can really be quite dangerous Collected for the first time in audiobook, these three Further Tales of Peter Rabbit, by award-winning screenwriter, actress and national treasure Emma Thompson, are a perfect gift for ages 4 and up.

About the Author

Emma Thompson

Emma Thompson is an Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress and has starred in a range of films from Love Actually to Harry Potter, in which she plays the part of Sybill Trelawney. Emma Thompson won an Oscar in 1996 for the Best Adapted Screenplay for her adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility, a film in which she also played the Oscar-nominated lead role opposite Hugh Grant.

Nanny McPhee: The Big Bang, published by Bloomsbury in March 2010, was Emma Thompson’s first novel for children. A wonderfully witty tale about the indomitable nanny of magical means which was also released as a film in which Emma played the title role.

Emma has also written two stories about Peter Rabbit - the first published in 2012, The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit and in 2013 The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit. Emma says.... 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.

She lives in London and Argyll.
