About the book: 

Peter Rabbit is used to being an only bunny, so he gets quite a surprise when not one, not two, but three baby rabbits join the family! Peter is not at all sure at first how he feels about his new siblings. Mrs Rabbit has thought of names for two of them: Flopsy and Mopsy - but it's Peter who gets to choose the third one! Suddenly he feels important and useful.

This is the first title in a new series of very young stories set in Peter Rabbit's world. The simple tales will deal with the early experiences and emotions of small children, as seen through the eyes of Beatrix Potter's classic characters.

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.
