Publishers Description
To celebrate Peter's birthday, Frederick Warne is publishing new editions of all 23 of Potter's original tales, which take the very first printings of Potter's works as their guide. The aim of these editions is to be as close as possible to Beatrix Potter's intentions while benefiting from modern printing and design techniques.
The colors and details of the watercolors in the volumes are reproduced more accurately than ever before, and it has now been possible to disguise damage that has affected the artwork over the years. Most notably, "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" restores six of Potter's original illustrations. Four were sacrificed in 1903 to make space for illustrated endpapers, and two have never been used before. Of course, Beatrix Potter created many memorable children's characters, including Benjamin Bunny, Tom Kitten, Jemima Puddle-duck and Jeremy Fisher. But whatever the tale, both children and adults alike can be delighted by the artistry in Potter's illustrations, while they also enjoy a very good read. Because they have always been completely true to a child's experience, Potter's 23 books continue to endure.

Read it first, before you read it to your kids  May 1, 2010
I read this for the 1st time aloud to my 5yr old. Background: my child hates eggs and omelettes. We are always making him take a few bites of his scrambled eggs when we go out for breakfast/brunch. He does know that certain animals hatch out of eggs. Maybe this is why he hates eating eggs.

Back to book review: This story was fine until we got to the part about the sly fox who, previously welcomed the duck to lay her eggs in his house, now asked the duck to fetch ingredients for an omelet, and the part about the fox-hounds raiding the duck's nest and eating up her laid eggs, and then the story ends abruptly with the something about the duck laying another set of eggs back safely at the farm only to have 2 eggs disappear (?) and then the other 4 became little ducklings. OK, the trickery of the bad fox aside, the connection between eggs-omelets-ducklings...that's not something I fully worked out with my child yet, mainly b/c he is a sweet and super sensitive child and knowing that eggs are/were potential little ducklings is not going to help my cause in making him eat his eggs for breakfast.

This book was first published in 1908, and it was a different world back then, where probably every child knew first-hand about farms, ducks, sly foxes, where eggs come from, why we keep them on the farm, the vulnerability of eggs to other predators, the difference between the eggs we eat vs fertilized eggs that become ducklings, etc. Kids back then probably knew it like they knew the sun came up in the morning. My child--maybe he's behind other kids in the Realities-of-Eggs subject--does not yet know. Well, he probably knows to an extent but not fully. And I was not happy that his first experience learning about all this came from this book. Maybe next year when he's over his egg phobia, he might love this story. Just not now.

Bottom line: fine book, but parents should read it first to gauge if your child is ready for it.
brutal, upsetting  Aug 15, 2009
I recognize that this is a classic, and can be weighed on its literary merit in that regard. From the perspective of women's history and the allegories in the story-- fine.

However, this is a brutal story. The tragedy of the mother-figure losing all of her eggs to dogs, and then only being allowed to keep some of her second set of eggs is deeply disturbing to both kids and potentially adult readers. There is enough real-world tragedy without adding this story into the mix for leisure reading. Better to discuss those realities with kids, when they are old enough, than to introduce a brutal read disguised as an animal story.
A Charming, Lesser Known Classic  Oct 4, 2008
THE TALE OF JEMIMA PUDDLE-DUCK is one of Beatrix Potter's lesser known tales, but it is still a favorite in our house. Jemima is a duck who wishes to hatch her own eggs. Apparently it is common on farms for hens to sit on duck eggs. Ducks in general, and Miss Jemima in particular, do not have the patience to sit on a nest for 28 days, so farmers transfer the eggs to hens. Jemima, however, is quite determined to hatch her own brood, and searches for a calm, quiet place to do so. In a secluded clearing, she meets an elegantly dressed gentleman with a long bushy tail, who is reading a newspaper. Jemima thinks he is mighty civil and handsome, and he is very solicitous of her plight. Jemima takes the sandy colored gentleman up on his offer of a safe, dry place to hatch her eggs. But there is more to this gentleman than meets the eye. Is he really as selfless as he seems?

THE TALE OF JEMIMA PUDDLE-DUCK quietly and deftly teaches children to be wary of strangers. This simple tale completely captures the imagination of young ones as they follow Jemima on her misadventures. As always, it is Ms. Potter's charming illustrations that are the true star of this book. Jemima looks like a real duck, albeit one who is wearing a bonnet and cape. The soft colors and rich detail of the original drawings continue to delight children of all ages.

My three year old has a special affinity to THE TALE OF JEMIMA PUDDLE-DUCK. Whenever the story refers to Jemima's sister-in-law, Mrs. Rebecca Puddle-duck, my wee one says, "That's me, Momma!" Any book that captures the imagination of my little puddle-duck is a winner with me.

Exactly what I wanted  Apr 6, 2008
The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck is a wonderful story (for adults perhaps more than for children), and the small hardback edition is wonderful. Recommended.
