This is my favourite of Potter's superb series: I love the way Peter holds up his chin to have his coat buttoned up (cover), as everywhere else his coat is flying open this is obviously a regular task for mother. I hope he is able to retrieve his coat and shoes from Mr McGregor's garden, because they are not working as a scarecrow. The joy of Potter's illustrations is that they are filled with details natural enough to be recognized by young readers, like the birds sneaking berries from the basket. ( )

This was a favorite of all my children and they always wanted me to read it when they were sick. Now I get to read it to my grandson when he is sick and wakes up in the middle of night and now it is one of his favorites. ( )
