A mid-century adaptation of the classic children's tale, in our popular shaped book format.
The popular tale of a disobedient rabbit and his misadventures in Mr. McGregor's garden is here presented in a colorful midcentury adaptation. Peter and his rabbit family are delightfully presented in human attire, and illustrator Ruth E. Newton mounts the familiar tale of adventure, several near escapes from danger and maternal justice with skill and charm.
Ruth E. Newton (1884-1972), the illustrator of Peter Rabbit, had a long career as a successful artist. Best known for her children's books, Newton also lent her talents to advertising art and toy design.
