The Lovereading4Kids comment
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.
The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit by Emma Thompson
In a follow-up to the cherished original Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit sees Peter on the quest for adventure.
Sneaking into Mr McGregor's garden to steal a lettuce, the naughty little rabbit finds himself in a picnic basket heading all the way to Scotland, where he meets the large but kindly Finlay McBurney, a distant cousin. Far away from his cousin, Benjamin Bunny, and the Lake District setting of Beatrix Potter's classic tale, Peter Rabbit gets all the adventure he was looking for as he encounters a giant radish and even takes part in the Highland Games.
Accompanied by a story CD, narrated by Emma herself, this wonderfully whimsical tale is perfect for Peter Rabbit fans old and new.
