Well nothing will do but to invade the forbidden garden, rescue the clothing and of course, sample and take some of Mr. McGregor's fine harvest.

My 2 year old loves this story she calls it, the bunny's friend book. She enjoys this story more than Peter Rabbit. I think that the story is more eventful than Peter Rabit; and it is nice that the bunnies get to finish their adventure. I have read hundreds of stories to my daughter and we both find this one enjoyable my 5 month old also seems to enjoy it. She likes the colorful pictures. I guess you could say that everyone is happy when this story is chosen. If you like Peter Rabbit you'll like Benjamin Bunny.

"Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were -- Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter. They lived with their Mother in a sand-bank, underneath the root of a very big tree."

And so began one of the most famous, long lasting and beloved children's books of all time...The Tale if Peter Rabbit. Of course it did not end there and there were many other stories to follow; not only of Peter, but an array of wonderful characters all set in the whimsical world of Beatrix Potter.

The Tale of Benjamin Bunny was published in 1904 and is a follow-up to the Tale of Peter Rabbit. Benjamin Bunny is traveling down a road when he notes that Mr. and Mrs. McGregor are leaving their home (and by the way, their garden). Of course Benjamin being Benjamin he immediately heads that way. He must go past his aunts Old Mrs. Rabbit's house, a widow, living with her children Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tale and Peter, his cousins. (It is interesting that in a later tale, sequentially anyway, that Benjamin marries his cousin Flopsy and they have a family of their own...reference The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies (Potter)

He spies Peter wrapped in a pocket-hankerchief and huddled by himself, and upon questioning him finds that he has lost his clothing to Mr. McGregor and they, the clothing, now cloth a scarecrow, "topped with an old tam-o-shanter of Mr. McGregor's. Well nothing will do but to invade the forbidden garden, rescue the clothing and of course, sample and take some of Mr. McGregor's fine harvest.

Oh my, trouble begins and they soon find themselves trapped under a basket by a very fine and large cat...for five hours!

Format: Hardcover
Full of fun and adventure, and a great companion to have with the tale of peter rabbit. While the tale of peter rabbit is full of mischief and adventure, this tale is full of adventure and teamwork (an important quality to instill in children. The book introduces a few more colorful characters to the series, and also gives peter a better ending than the last one!

The illustrations are very captivating, and it's clear that much hard work went into them.

As a writer of children's tales about rabbits, the peter rabbit series is by far my favorite. This book makes an excellent addition. I hope you and your young ones will enjoy it.

My son thoroughly enjoys this series. "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" is a particularly good story to read after the child becomes familiar with "The Tale of Peter Rabbit," which sets up this story of Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit's visit to Mr. McGreggor's garden. The story itself is told in the same charming prose, using appropriate words that many of today's readers tend to avoid because they appear "too difficult." The series published by Frederick Warne, in particular, had the vision to size the book perfectly for small hands, allowing even the youngest "readers" to enjoy the story, whether it is read, or whether one studies the many delightful, detailed images that fit the text so well. I highly recommend this book, as well as the rest of the Beatrix Potter series published by Frederick Warne.

I was very disappointed with this edition and did not give it to the Benjamin for whom it was intended. I probably did not read the description carefully enough, but I was expecting the small, hardcover copy with colored illustrations that I used to buy for my son. This copy is very dull, the illustrations are in black and white and the cover is paperback. I will have to look elsewhere for a more interesting copy.

As a child I loved Beatrice Potters books---they were quite wonderful tales with a a gentle lesson in them. Reading them to a child is priceless. I bought this book for my grandaughter and I hope to read it to her soon. Her brother also would benefit from this book, even though he is more active with a short attention span. Because my mother took the time to read to me and my sister, we have become life long reader's---a rare gift indeed!

Format: Paperback
Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit became a classic on the strength of its illustrations, and on that most important point, this Dalmation Press edition fails.

As with my review of Dalmation's release of the original story (The Tale of Peter Rabbit), I must point out that the color on the illustrations here is not optimal, either. Perhaps not quite as over-saturated and "wet" as in that other review, but still blurry. Perhaps the result of too much enlargement?

This cheap paperback comes with cheap thin covers and cheap stapled binding. Still, it cost a buck. (We may have bought it from Target's Dollar Spot.) And it provides a fuller telling of the story than some truncated editions. That means your child will enjoy such gems as:

"Then he came back to the basket and took out his son Benjamin by the ears, and whipped him with the little switch." (!!)
