A Very Naughty Rabbit Summary


A Very Naughty Rabbit: Tales of Mayhem and Mischief by Beatrix Potter

A wonderfully naughty collection of classic tales by Beatrix Potter. A Very Naughty Rabbit: Tales of Mayhem and Mischief is a unique collection of specially selected classic tales following some of Beatrix Potter's naughtiest characters. The tales get naughtier and naughtier, culminating in The Story of a Fierce Bad Rabbit. Each tale is followed by reproductions of humorous letters written by Beatrix in the style of the characters in each tale. But most important of all are the 'Take Heed' sections, where we find out if the naughty characters really have learned their lesson. The eleven tales are: The Tale of Peter Rabbit The Tale of Benjamin Bunny The Tale of The Flopsy Bunnies The Tale of Two Bad Mice The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck The Tale of Tom Kitten The Story of Miss Moppet The Tale of Mr. Jeremy Fisher The Tale of Samuel Whiskers or The Roly-Poly Pudding The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin The Story of A Fierce Bad Rabbit Beatrix Potter is regarded as one of the world's best-loved children's authors of all time. From her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published by Frederick Warne in 1902, she went on to create a series of stories based around animal characters including Mrs.Tiggy-winkle, Benjamin Bunny, Jemima Puddle-duck, Mr. Jeremy Fisher and Tom Kitten. Her humorous, lively tales and beautiful illustrations have become a natural part of childhood. From the revenue from the sales of her books, Beatrix Potter bought a farm - Hill Top - in the English Lake District, where she later became a farmer and prize-winning sheep breeder. She launched the now vast merchandise programme by patenting the very first Peter Rabbit doll in 1903. The product range continues to grow today with licences around the world including baby clothing and bedding, nursery decor products and collectables. Upon her death, Beatrix Potter left 14 farms and over 4000 acres of Lake District farmland to the National Trust so that the place that she loved would remain undeveloped and protected for future generations to enjoy. Today Beatrix Potter's original 23 tales are still published by Frederick Warne, alongside a wide range of other formats including baby books, activity books and gift and sound books.
