About the book: 

It's Christmas Eve and Peter Rabbit and his sisters are excited, but Peter is worried too. They have all wished for a special present but Peter can't sleep, and he knows Father Christmas won't visit if he's still awake.

As the hours drag by anxious Peter hears a little creak here, and a little bump there, so now he's even LESS likely to fall asleep. Poor Peter. Will his Christmas wish EVER come true?

This is the second title in a new series of stories for the very young set in Peter Rabbit's world. The simple tales mirror important early experiences and emotions of young children through the eyes of Beatrix Potter's most well-loved characters, while Eleanor Taylor's illustrations are filled with charm, warmth and humour.

About the Author

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.
