The Complete Adventures of Peter Rabbit Reviews

    Gorgeous edition of all the Peter Rabbit stories. Though they are pretty scary reading as a grown up - literally Peter Rabbit's mum is nonchalantly like 'don't play at Mr McGregor's garden, he cooked up your dad & ate him' then leaves her bunny children unsupervised for the day. What does she think is going to happen??? As if the kids aren't going to go STRAIGHT TO FORBIDDEN PLACE.Then Peter spends one of the sequels seriously traumatised by his visit to said garden to the point where he basically starts hallucinating and hearing things. In a later story, a badger hides a bunch of rabbit babies in an oven in preparation for a snack only to be foiled by a fox who would also eat the babies. Still - love these stories.

    Ok, never read Beatrix Potter as a kid (though I have heard of Peter Rabbit and recognized her illustrations pretty well because she's so popular) so reading this for school was really my first time ever but ohmy, this book. IT WAS AWESOME. It had things that I don't think children's books could get away with saying nowadays. For example in "Tale of Peter Rabbit" the mother warned the bunnies not to go into Mr. McGregor's garden because their father was captured and baked into a pie and it SHOWS A PICTURE OF MRS. MCGRREGOR BAKING THE RABBIT FILLED PIE. In "The Tale of Benjamin Bunny", Benjamin Bunny and his cousin Peter Rabbit go into Mr. McGregor's garden where they are trapped by a cat for five hours only to be rescued by Old Mr. Bunny (Benjamin's father and Peter's uncle) who right away takes a switch to each of the boys. And again, THERE IS A PICTURE OF HIM SWITCHING THEIR BACKSIDES. Like I said, stuff that would in no way get published today but back in 1901 when children were expected to obey their parents OR ELSE, this is in now considered a classic. Really interesting when you think about it that way.Still a good set of novels. Not sure I'd read it to my kids/nieces/nephews/cousins though. Maybe to scare them. Because really, this was all these four novels were basically about.

    Beatrix Potter's stories of personified animals are a delightful tour of the themes that shape our lives: obedience... and disobedience, adventure, greed, guilt service, service, hard work, telling the truth, love, and on and on and on. These impressions are colored with Potter's whimsical mark of narration and illustration. A family treasure. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful, marvelous drawings, but some stories didn't raise to my expectations.

    [Quick review from memory until I re-read and re-review at a later date:I've never really thought about Peter Rabbit much and I don't remember anything about this at all. Is that an omen?]

    I'm ashamed to admit I haven't read most of these lovely little tales before, and I'm glad to have them all in one place. This version contains 17 of Beatrix Potter's stories, and can be enjoyed all at once or spread out over a few week's worth of bedtimes. These stories are really meant to be read aloud. Beatrix Potter's illustrations are beautiful, but I enjoyed this audiobook with only her simple words to draw the pictures.Laurel Schroeder is an excellent choice as the voice actor, she read them as I'd imagine Beatrix Potter herself would have. She has a lovely cultured accent for the regular narration, and gives each mouse or squirrel their own piping little voice. She handles the rhymes and riddles so well, they brought a smile to my face each time. My favorite was The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin with his silly sing song riddles. I was provided a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I would listen to a classic by this narrator again.

    Sometimes I get on a classic kick/have an urge to read stories that are regarded as classics, such as with this one. Peter Rabbit wasn't a part of my childhood, but I figured I'd give it a shot and see what I thought of it as an adult. I read it and . . . well, I can't say that I liked it. I'm not sure if it was because I didn't have nostalgia for it, if I found the characters unmemorable, or that I found Peter Rabbit rather obnoxious/certain parts of it disturbing, but I just didn't care for it.Seriously, baby rabbits in an oven?

    Charming stories of rabbits, a fox, a badger, a cat, some mice, and a farmer and his wife. I vaguely remember reading this when I was very young.

    Beatrix Potter was always a favorite during childhood. Mom use to read to us from a collection of select stories. A few Christmases back I asked for some of her books, hoping to revisit the stories. This book was given then, though I never read the whole thing until now.I knew the first tow stories in the collection well—the tales of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. They were both in the old collection I knew. But the Second two stories, "The The of the Flopsy Bunnies" and "The Tale of Mr. Tod" were unknown to me. All stories feature Peter Rabbit. "Benjamin Bunny" is a direct sequel to the original story I think everyone is familiar with. The other two stories feature Peter and Benjamin grown up, trying to save their children from mischief and bad ends. The last story, "Mr. Tod" is especially dark with a badger stealing the baby bunnies and hiding them in an oven before he gets in a huge fight with a fox. Only Beatrix Potter would have one of her rabbits say, "Mu Uncle Bouncer has displayed a lamentable want of discretion for his years." I love the big-word prose for a children's book, let alone the high-falootin' ways she writes things. The first story is the best in the group, a classic, but the following stories are not as strong. "Benjamin Bunny" is kind of a minor misadventure about Peter getting his clothes from the MacGregor's garden. "Flopsy Bunnies" is kind of a rehash of the first story with more rabbits invading the garden. The last story is interesting especially because of how long it is and the focus on the villains (which Potter announces is her goal at the beginning of the story. Although she doesn't call them villains, but "disagreeable people."As always, her illustrations are often very finely crafted and beautiful.

    My son and I read this as a part of Sonlight's P4/5 curriculum. I loved Beatrix Potter's stories as a child so I was excited to share these with my son. The stories were just as wonderful as I remembered. My son's favorite characters were Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny. The illustrations in this edition are lovely. Even though the last story is quite long (we broke it up between 2 days) my son could have listened to whole thing in one sitting. He was completely enthralled. The older vocabulary and sentence structure is a bit taxing. I found myself tripping over quite a few sentences. However, I do feel that it is important to introduce young children to older stories for this very reason. He may not have understood every single part of the story, but with the aid of the pictures, he was able to follow along quite well. This book is a great addition to any preschooler's home library.

    Not bad, nice little stories, I always thought Peter Rabbit was a cocky little creature but turns out he was really traumatised by his experience in Mr McGregor's garden, you really see this in the Benjamin bunny story, my daughter thought it was really sad.The first 3 stories are short but the last one about Mr Tod feels epic, the pictures in that story amazing, especially the brutal fight between the fox and the badger. Love me a bit of violence in kids books.Enjoyed this more than I expected, maybe a tad disappointed with how short the actual Peter rabbit story was.

    I can remember reading and loving the Tale of Peter Rabbit when I was a kid, and revisiting it as an adult was no less satisfying. This collection of the four stories was/is wonderful. While Peter Rabbit's tale is my favorite, the other three (The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies, and The Tale of Mr. Tod) were equally enjoyable.

    A book that my children had me read out loud dozens and dozens of times. One of the first books they read independently. The short paragraphs and multitude of pictures simply gave my children the illusion they were reading a simple "picture book with a few more words." This book delighted them and greatly increased their vocabulary. Fantastic illustrations and wonderful stories.

    This was a little boring for my son. He's 6 years old almost 7 so maybe I should have waiting to read it to him. Then again I was a little bored as well. However, the pictures are pretty and the storyline is cute. I have to give Beatrix Potter her props for making such cute stories.

    These tales are pretty horrific when you actually read them - little bunnies getting "dashed against" things, really mean characters, the bunnies smoke... so I'm glad we read them now so I will remember not to read them when he's older!!

    An excellent and timeless classic and worthy read.Some editing on the parents part may be required as some parts were a bit dated in the style of parental discipline to the young rabbits.Can also aid in encouraging eating veggies and drinking chamomile tea!

    Peter and Benjamin had fun stories but Mr.Brock's was a little more comical. I've had this book for years, but it is refreshing to read again.

    A childhood favorite, follow the little rabbit takes on a whole new meaning in this series of anthropomorphic animal characters. While lessons are learned, it's not heavy handed moralistically.

    I understand these are cute stories and they have good morals in them, but frankly I find them kinda of boring, and so do my kids. They are cute though.
