Outline ReviewCan you imagine the tale of Peter Rabbit in rhyme? Or if the misbehaving fellow were named Peter Piper instead? In this lavishly illustrated, truly definitive guide to the world's most beloved bunny and his creator, readers discover many of the whys and hows and might-have-beens behind the classic stories by Beatrix Potter. Covering more than 100 years, from the Victorian era of Beatrix's childhood, when the ideas for the stories were percolating, to the present, when computer animators recreate the action in Mr. McGregor's garden, this handsome volume is packed with photos, illustrations, and fascinating tidbits about the author and her time. Meet the children for whom Beatrix Potter wrote many of her stories and learn the tragic love story behind the scenes while the author penned The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle. The history of such favorite characters as Mrs. Tittlemouse, Benjamin Bunny, Mr. Tod, and Squirrel Nutkin is explored, and artifacts such as dolls from 1904 and original manuscript pages are presented. For the true fan of any age, this big, gorgeous book will cause a real "flutterment and a scufflement" and possibly even "a loud 'squeak!'" (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
