Review: The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.

Review: The Tale of Benjamin Bunny

           The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, the immediate sequel to The Tale of Peter Rabbit, is also a wonderful work of art. Peter and his cousin Benjamin go to the garden to retrieve some things Peter left in the first book.  Benjamin Bunny has a more relaxed pace in comparison to the exciting chase in Peter Rabbit. This time Mr. and Mrs. McGregor have gone out. Their adversary is a cat, which is depicted in several lovely renderings. The interactions between the cat and the rabbits are very true to life, and the watercolors throughout both books are remarkably beautiful. Reading Benjamin Bunny is like taking a quiet stroll through a garden, which is why it is my favorite Beatrix Potter books.

Five stars!
