Peter Rabbit Little Library £1.65 @ Asda
The Peter Rabbit Little Library is a book set containing stories about Peter Rabbit and five of his little friends. I don't think these are the originals - on the website it says that the stories are based on the original tales and use Beatrix Potter's original artwork. The price on the website is £3.65, but if you enter the online voucher discount code BOOK2 the price is reduced to £1.65. Delivery is free.
I'm not sure what I love the most about Beatrix Potter, the stories or the beautiful illustrations. I loved to death the Beatrix Potter set of books we had when I was a child, and I invested in a set for my son as well. We also had Beatrix Potter Audio LP (remember those!) with the stories read by Wendy Craig (of Butterflies fame).
The books I bought for my son are a little bit too posh I think. They were expensive, and are beautifully made, but I find myself rather reluctant to let him anywhere near them. As I write this I am realising that I did in fact buy those books for me! A set like this makes for a perfect introduction to Beatrix Potter for little ones, and I wouldn't be afraid to let him loose on the books on his own!
