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.

A challenging children's tale, great for developing minds  Mar 20, 2010
This is a charming, well constructed children's tale involving a pair of squirrels, a pair of chipmunks and a mischievous bird.

Timmy and his wife Goody start storing nuts for winter, but due to the antics of a forgetful squirrel, a bird starts chirping of that squirrel's seemingly thieving antics. The other forest creatures hear this chirping and finger Timmy (not the forgetful squirrel) as the culprit. They confine Timmy to a prison that Timmy can't get out of on account of his size. Timmy ends up making friends in that prison with a male chipmunk. The wife's of Timmy and his new friend chipmunk soon meet each other and then go off to find their missing husbands. They succeed, and Timmy is set loose of his prison when the wind breaks the tree apart.

This story can be a little hard to follow, but I don't necessarily think that is a bad thing. What's the worse thing that could happen, would children read the story again to try and better understand it instead of sitting in front of the television?

Good book--eventful and fulfilling, I think parents will appreciate it, and children will love it.

Great for children...  Oct 26, 2004
My son wanted me to read a book to him, and I just grabbed this off his shelf. We have a big set of Potter's books. This one is not the favorite, but we enjoy all her books. My son learns a lot, and will ask, "Mom, what does commotion mean...", for example. Beatrix Potter's books are great vocabulary builders for this reason. I love the old fashioned style, and simple sweet ways of these stories. It brings everyday animals to 'life'. The illustrations alone, and the little clothes the animals wear, and their personalities, are just too cute. I would highly recommend!

My 2 1/2 year old picked this book out because of the cute squirrel picture. I vaguely remembered the Potter books from my childhood and was sure that it would be nice.

Although the story is somewhat hard to follow, here is the basic storyline....

It starts out very nicely with a squirrel and his wife, preparing for winter; gathering and storing nuts. Timmy stashes his in a hollow tree. A roving band of forgetful squirrels can't remember where their nuts are and begin to fight. About this time, a bird comes by and randomly begins to sing "who's been digging up my nuts" (Beatrix goes out of her way to explain that this is not mean spirited, but just the normal song that a bird would sing) Naturally, the gang of squirrels thinks that Timmy has stolen their nuts and they beat him severely, and stuff him in the hollow tree, through a small hole that results in the breaking of his ribs. His wife is distraught when he doesn't come home and goes to look for him. Meanwhile a chipmunk, who has left his wife to live in the hollow tree, holds the injured Timmy hostage (Think "Misery") while he force feeds nuts to him to prevent his departure through the small hole. Assuming her husband won't return, Timmy's wife continues collecting nuts and dumps them into a hole, that just happens to be inhabited by the chipmunks estranged wife. Mrs. Chipmunk shows Mrs. Squirrel where the husbands are camped out, but refuses to go in to get Timmy because she is afraid that Mr. Chipmunk will bite her. So the husbands stay in the tree and eat nuts for a good while, until a storm blows the tree down and Timmy can excape. The squirrels are reunited, but the stubborn, violent chipmunk chooses to stay in the stump and be rained upon, rather than go home to his wife. After catching a bad cold, he still needs to be scared off by a bear before he will go home to his wife. The lesson of the story...Timmy & his wife lock up their stash of nuts from now on. This was a terrible children's story.

Timmy Tiptoes  Mar 13, 2003
This tale is a very funny tale about a very funny squirrel named Timmy Tiptoes. Him and his wife Goody are getting ready for fall and hibernation. They go out to collect some nuts to store for winter and spring, and you can only imagine what could happen to then. This is yet another great story from Beatrix Potter, but not one of her best ones, I think.
The other squirrels in the forest think that Timmy has stolen all his nuts from their storehouses and they go to chase him. He then gets trapped in a tree with a chipmunk, known simply as Chipmunk. They decide to stay there while both of their wives get very angry with them. Read to find out what happens to the both of them, in this great book, perfect for nature and animal lovers.
Happy Ending  Jul 14, 2000
Out of the complete Beatrix Potter collection, my 4-year-old daughter enjoys hearing this story the most. This story keeps her attention through the entire story. She looks forward to the end when Timmy Tiptoes is reunited with his wife. Some of Potter's stories can be a little harsh, this one is border-line, where the child may worry about Timmy Tiptoes, but he ends up getting back to his wife and life as usual.
