The Tale Of Peter Rabbit




This commemorative edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first manned landing on the Moon.

One small hop for a rabbit . . . One giant leap for mankind.

This limited edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit is a must-have for Potter and space enthusiasts alike. It tells the iconic tale of Peter Rabbit, while celebrating the cultural impact and scientific achievement of the Apollo 11 moon landing, 50 years ago in July 1969.

To celebrate an iconic cultural moment in human history, we have designed this playful and stylish imagining of one small rabbit landing on one large moon. Taking one of the best-loved tales and one of the most globally admired human achievements, the two marry perfectly to create this wonderfully playful imagining. With the original Tale of Peter Rabbit in full colour, encased in a visually-stunning space cover and endpapers; modern meets classic with extraordinary results.

About the Author

Beatrix Potter

Beatrix has created some of the best-loved characters in children's literature.
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.
