The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit

The Christmas Tale of Peter Rabbit
By, Emma Thompson
Illustrated by, Eleanor Taylor
Penguin Group, London, England 2013
67 Pages

A sweet new Christmas book, based on a classic.  This wonderful new version of Peter Rabbit, is told this time by Emma Thompson!  Peter and Benjamin, cousins and rabbits, set about to save their friend William the Turkey from being the McGregor's Christmas dinner.  They have trouble hiding him though, as he insists on keeping his feathers fluffed up and fanned out! (He's a very proud turkey.)  In the end their creativity and kindness win out.  A great story about friendship, empathy, and Christmas!
