Beatrix loves the countryside, but lives in a big, lonely house in London – if only she had a friend. Then she meets Benjamin Bunny and everything changes! They spend every day together playing chase and follow my leader. But when Benjamin dies, Beatrix is heartbroken. She decides to write about Benjamin’s adventures and about her new bunny, Peter, who plays the tambourine and jumps through hoops.

Peter Rabbit fans will love finding out about the life of his creator and the real-life bunnies Beatrix loved. Discover her deep connection with animals, her determination to be published, and her role as a pioneering conservationist.

Written in consultation with experts from the National Trust, this is the perfect book for animal lovers, budding writers and artists, and young environmentalists.
