Peter Rabbit Tales - A Pumpkin For Peter


Formats & editions


A reassuring, Peter Rabbit story about facing fears of the dark.

It's a wild, autumnal afternoon and the Rabbit family are on their way to collect a pumpkin.

Cotton-tail, Flopsy and Mopsy might be scared of the stormy trees, and the sound of owls, and the snap of a twig, but Peter is definitely not scared. Not even a litle bit.

This charming Halloween tale has a reassuring message about facing fears of the dark. Eleanor Taylor's humorous illustrations of Beatrix Potter's well-loved characters mirror young children's early experiences.

About the Author

Beatrix Potter

Beatrix has created some of the best-loved characters in children's literature.
Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District. She started her career as children's author and illustrator in 1901 when she was thirty-five. In the years before the First World War, demand for her work was so great that she was publishing an average of two new stories a year. As she became financially independent, she was able to buy some land in the Lake District and in 1913, on her marriage to solicitor William Heelis, she moved to live there permanently. For the last thirty years of her life, writing and illustrating gave place to a second career as a sheep farmer and countryside conservationist.
Her little books never lost their popularity however and today they sell in their millions, translated into numerous languages, and the pleasures of those timeless tales continue to be enjoyed by children all over the world.
