World of Peter Rabbit - the Complete Collection of Original Tales 1-23 Beatrix Potter (ages 3-8)
From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, Beatrix Potter 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. This is a collection of Beatrix Potter's original Peter Rabbit books.
This beautiful gift box has been specially produced to celebrate 110 years since the publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit and contains all 23 Original Peter Rabbit Books.
What makes this edition even more special is that each of the books has specially designed endpapers and a publisher's note describing how each book came to be.

About 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.
