Rattle, rattle! Peter Rabbit is on the move in this tiny board book. A die-cut hole through each colorful page creates a handle just right for little fingers, and a clear plastic window in the cover is filled with small beads that make a pleasant clatter when shaken. Look within for a short, baby-appropriate romp through Peter Rabbit's world. The mischievous blue-jacketed bunny hops, crunches vegetables, plays "hide and... peek," and rattles to his heart's content, all to the accompanying din of click-clacking beads. Very young "readers" will enjoy their first taste of Beatrix Potter's classic stories in this lively, round-edged novelty book, and may be eager to meet another beloved character, Jemima Puddle-Duck, in Jemima, Rattle!. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
Beatrix Potter has created some of the best-loved characters in children's literature.
Beatrix Potter was born in London in 1866. During her rather lonely childhood and later, as a young woman, she studied art and natural history. She acquired her love and knowledge of the countryside during family holidays, at first in Scotland and then in the Lake District. She started her career as children's author and illustrator in 1901 when she was thirty-five. In the years before the First World War, demand for her work was so great that she was publishing an average of two new stories a year. As she became financially independent, she was able to buy some land in the Lake District and in 1913, on her marriage to solicitor William Heelis, she moved to live there permanently. For the last thirty years of her life, writing and illustrating gave place to a second career as a sheep farmer and countryside conservationist.
Her little books never lost their popularity however and today they sell in their millions, translated into numerous languages, and the pleasures of those timeless tales continue to be enjoyed by children all over the world.
