Review: The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit

  Review: The Tale of Peter Rabbit

          The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Five out of five stars. A delightfully drawn story of a family of rabbits with a theme of obedience. Beatrix Potter draws and describes rabbits with remarkably accurate details. The little rabbits are so lifelike they could hop off the page. The ink and watercolor sketches depict a wide range of natural movement, and as well as reasonable allowances for cute little jackets and shoes. The story follows Peter to Mr. McGregor’s garden, a delicious smorgasbord of vegetables Peter’s mother forbade him from visiting. Unfortunately for Peter, Mr. McGregor is working in his garden today, and wants to catch the rabbit eating his produce. Peter reacts like a rabbit, down to his nervous tremor and the inquisitive perking of his adorable ears. The whole book is charming, and it is easy to see why it is a must-read classic.
