The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit
110 years after the publication of Beatrix Potter's original Peter Rabbit tale, a brand new book starring one of the world's most famous rabbits is being released in September 2012
Written by actress Emma Thompson, Peter Rabbit's new adventure sees him squeezing under the gate into Mr. McGregor's garden and being carted away from his beloved Lake District to the Scottish lowlands. This plucky little rabbit soon finds himself in the middle of a great big, brand new adventure and has the best of fun!
If you grew up with Beatrix Potter's books, we're sure this tale will entertain you just as much as it will your children and grandchildren.
With Children's Book Week approaching from 1st to 7th October, why not take the opportunity to bring a classic book character back to life. For a small child, simply add a blue coat to our brown rabbit or hare costume for Peter, or a brown coat for Benjamin Bunny. For something more fun for an older child why not add a kilt to become Peter's Scottish cousin, Finlay McBurney! the champion turnip thrower !!!
Our brown rabbit or hare costume, in 3 sizes for age 4-6 years, 6-8 years and 8-10 years can be found on our Theatrical Threads Website
What do you think?
Is it good to bring back an iconic brand, such as Beatrix Potter in a new form with a new writer?
