    I think this book (and Potter’s other animal stories) were probably amongst the first to appear on my bookshelf as a child.

  2. ozamprogna says:

    I think this book is really cute. I love the illustrations because they are really realistic.

  3. Demi Kelly says:

    I enjoyed this fabulous tale. Peter Rabbit lost his blue jacket with brass buttons. What an adventure and his Mum is kind. Great read….

  4. Frances Hartland says:

    I really liked it when Peter Rabbit’s sisters went to pick blackberries, because I love picking blackberries to eat. And I liked it when Peter ate French beans and radishes because I like them too, but not lettuces.

  5. Wilfred Riley says:

    Peter Rabbit was not listening to his Mum but the other little rabbits, his sisters, were listening.

  6. rmundle says:

    I like the part when Peter rabbit was being chased. Its exciting the first time you read the book.

    I like the bit where Peter Rabbit is being chased. Its exciting because the first time you read it you don’t know what’s going to happen.

    I love this classic book. I remember my Mum reading this to me when I was little. My favourite part is when Peter manages to escape from Mr McGregor! I love the other books in the series too.

    I liked this book because Peter is a naughty boy , also this book is sad because Peter’s dad gets caught but Peter escapes just in time to get away from Mr Mcgreggors garden or , “so called ” allotment. This book is really good and I recommend this book to all ages , especially 7 year olds.

    when I started reading I didn’t have any words when I finished it it was amazing it was adventurous but there was one thing I didn’t like about it the bad thing was when I finished reading it i wanted to carry on reading it and read the next adventure but its fine Peter Rabbit encouraged me to read more adventure books so this is why i like Peter Rabbit.

    peter rabbit i find qutie funny but a bit natuy stealing stuff from mr gregs garden

  40. rmarujo says:

    a good book with a lot of mischievous rabbits.

  41. Mr Milne says:

    Peter Rabbit is quite an exciting (even frightening, if you’re young) cautionary tale. Peter’s mother tells him not to go into Mr McGregor’s garden: remember, she says, Mrs McGregor cooked your father in a pie! But Peter won’t listen! Many of Beatrix Potter’s tales are set in the countryside surrounding her house in the Lake District (which is in the north-west of England). It’s a nice place to visit if you’re ever in the area. There are lots of good Beatrix Potter tales. If you enjoyed Peter Rabbit, try one of the others – perhaps you’ve heard of Jemima Puddleduck or Mrs Tiggy-Winkle or Jeremy Fisher, all great Beatrix Potter characters. The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding is a great and macabre tale about a disobedient young cat living in a house overrun with rats who nearly comes to an awful end…

    1. rmarujo says:

      a good long review

  42. olgadroogleever says:

  43. rrazabenfahem says:

    Good book really interesting

  44. ikanarski says:

    Peter Rabbit is a very fun book and is very adventurous. My favourite part is when he goes to the angry framer and eats his turnips.

  45. oleach says:

    There was a little rabbit called Peter and he lived with his three sisters and his mother. His sisters were called Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. One day his mother went out and she said to Peter, “You go along and get some blackberries, mulberries and blackcurrants, but you promise me you won’t go into Mr. McGregor’s garden.”

    I thought the book was exciting and Peter was a naughty little rabbit!

  46. madom2 says:

    Peter rabbit is such a mischievous rabbit and is always getting in trouble.

    1. achapman says:
