The Further Tale of Peter Rabbit - SIGNED BY EMMA THOMPSON

£50.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This enchanting book, by one of our most successful actresses (who is also a screenwriter), appeared in 2012 (110 years after the original), and will delight anyone who knows and loves Beatrix Potter's naughty young Peter Rabbit. It begins like the original, as Peter squeezes under the gate into Mr. McGregor's garden... but he is then carted away from his beloved Lake District to the Scottish lowlands, where he finds himself in the middle of a great big, brand new adventure. Emma Thompson's style is similar to Beatrix Potter's, making her the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale. The delightful illustrations by Eleanor Taylor also closely match Potter's own style. If you grew up with Beatrix Potter's books, we're sure this tale will entertain you just as much as it will your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and any other little ones you know!

Emma Thompson (born 1959) is a British actress and screenwriter, known for her portrayals of reticent women, often in period dramas and literary adaptations, and playing haughty or matronly characters with a sense of irony. She is considered one of Britain's most accomplished actresses.

Our copy is in excellent condition, appearing almost unused. The unclipped dust jacket shows no signs of wear, and the decorated boards of the book are without blemish. The author's signature, in black felt-tip pen, adorns the front free endpaper, with a brief message to the owner in the 'belongs to' panel (see photo). Inside, the pages are all clean and bright, the binding firm, and there are no signs of wear. A very nice copy indeed.
