Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0142407895, Paperback)

Young Noel loves the visits from family friend Beatrix Potter. She always brings something wonderful—from toys and gifts to real mice and rabbits that the children can play with. But then Miss Potter goes away, and Noel falls ill. He lies in bed all summer, too sick to do anything. Until a fat envelope arrives. Noel tears it open, eager for news from Miss Potter. But it’s better than news—it’s a story! A story of a naughty but lovable little rabbit, brought to life with wonderful illustrations. Noel reads it again and again, and before long, he’s well and eagerly awaiting Miss Potter’s return. It is this story—originally written over a hundred years ago to cheer a special young friend—that became The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and has charmed millions of readers all over the world.
