A Very Naughty Rabbit Tales of Mayhem and Mischief by Beatrix Potter


A Very Naughty Rabbit Tales of Mayhem and Mischief by Beatrix Potter

A wonderfully naughty collection of classic tales by Beatrix Potter. A Very Naughty Rabbit: Tales of Mayhem and Mischief is a unique collection of specially selected classic tales following some of Beatrix Potter's naughtiest characters. The tales get naughtier and naughtier, culminating in The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit . Each tale is followed by reproductions of humorous letters written by Beatrix in the style of the characters in each tale. But most important of all are the 'Take Heed' sections, where we find out if the naughty characters really have learned their lesson. The eleven tales are: The Tale of Peter Rabbit ; The Tale of Benjamin Bunny ; The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies ; The Tale of Two Bad Mice ; The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck ; The Tale of Tom Kitten ; The Story of Miss Moppet ; The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher ; The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding ; The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin ; The Story of A Fierce Bad Rabbit . Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit , published by Frederick Warne in 1902, she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs.Tiggy-winkle , Benjamin Bunny , Jemima Puddle-duck , Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten . Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. From the revenue from the sales of her books, Beatrix Potter bought a farm - Hill Top - in the English Lake District, where she later became a farmer and prize-winning sheep breeder. She launched the now vast merchandise programme by patenting the very first Peter Rabbit doll in 1903. The product range continues to grow today with licences around the world including baby clothing and bedding, nursery decor products and collectables. Upon her death, Beatrix Potter left 14 farms and over 4000 acres of Lake District farmland to the National Trust so that the place that she loved would remain undeveloped and protected for future generations to enjoy. Today Beatrix Potter's original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books. Look out for Beatrix Potter's original series of classic tales, published by Warne: The Tale of Peter Rabbit ; The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin ; The Tailor of Gloucester ; The Tale of Benjamin Bunny ; The Tale of Two Bad Mice ; The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle ; The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher ; The Tale of Tom Kitten ; The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck ; The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies ; and The Tale of Mrs. Tittlemouse .

About the Author

Beatrix Potter

Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District. She started her career as children's author and illustrator in 1901 when she was thirty-five. In the years before the First World War, demand for her work was so great that she was publishing an average of two new stories a year. As she became financially independent, she was able to buy some land in the Lake District and in 1913, on her marriage to solicitor William Heelis, she moved to live there permanently. For the last thirty years of her life, writing and illustrating gave place to a second career as a sheep farmer and countryside conservationist.

Her little books never lost their popularity however and today they sell in their millions, translated into numerous languages, and the pleasures of those timeless tales continue to be enjoyed by children all over the world.
