    The Complete Brambly Hedge by Jill Barklem (PitcherBooks)
    PitcherBooks: Both are lovely animal stories with totally endearing artwork. Potter's work is a vintage classic and Barklem's book a recent classic.

A cute and quick children's book! Benjamin Bunny is Peter Rabbit's cousin. Peter Rabbit left his clothibg and shoes in Mr. McGregor's garden. Benjamin takes Peter on an adventure. After they retrieve Peter's clothing, they decide to pick some of McGregor's garden to take home, but only to have a run in with McGregor's cat. After hiding for hours, Peter's and Benjamin's family come looking for them. ( )

In this tale we hear all about his and Peter's adventures in Mr. McGregor's vegetable garden, and what happens to them when they meet a cat! Even more frightening, is what happens to the two pesky bunnies when Old Mr. Benjamin Bunny finds out what they have been up to!

The story "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" by Beatrix Potter teaches the importance of companionship and family in times of need to its readers. The illustrations and text keep readers engaged because of the details in the pictures, giving the characters Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit human-like qualities by dressing them in clothing and completing human-like actions. What I would have preferred to be included in the story was the reason why Peter Rabbit's clothes were taken and how they had gotten on Mr. Mc-Gregor's scarecrow. Readers, especially young ones, want to know details like that. "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny" emphasizes the importance of being there for your friends and family when needed and overcoming challenges needed to succeed. ( )
