I love this book because it is one I was read as a child. It is fun and catchy. This book is a classic and is one that children love to read. The pictures are nice. ( )

Pieter Konijn is een echte klassieker. Tegenwoordig zijn er hele moderne prentenboeken beschikbaar, naar mijn mening is Pieter Konijn een klassieker die gelezen moet worden. Er zit een spannende verhaallijn in, en het is erg prettig om te lezen. ( )

I identified more closely with Peter Rabbit than I did most other characters in the scheme of my entire life. This past summer, signalling to me that I was truly an adult, I had to be "Mr. McGregor" in the game of "Rabbits" that one boy at the museum had invented. (The only rule was that the rabbits always won.) ( )

Disambiguation notice
I have been separating the hieroglyph edition from other versions of Peter Rabbit, but it keeps getting combined again. I hold that the group of people who want to read a hieroglyphic version is rather different from average Beatrix Potter fans and therefore the "cocktail party" test applies.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0723247706, Hardcover)

The quintessential cautionary tale, Peter Rabbit warns naughty children about the grave consequences of misbehaving. When Mrs. Rabbit beseeches her four furry children not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden, the impish Peter naturally takes this as an open invitation to create mischief. He quickly gets in over his head, when he is spotted by farmer McGregor himself. Any child with a spark of sass will find Peter's adventures remarkably familiar. And they'll see in Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail that bane of their existence: the "good" sibling who always does the right thing. One earns bread and milk and blackberries for supper, while the obstinate folly of the other warrants medicine and an early bedtime.

Beatrix Potter's animal stories have been a joy to generations of young readers. Her warm, playful illustrations in soft colors invite children into the world of words and flights of fancy. Once there, she gently and humorously guides readers along the path of righteousness, leaving just enough room for children to wonder if that incorrigible Peter will be back in McGregor's garden tomorrow. (Ages Baby to Preschool)
