In 2012, Great Britain will host the Olympic Games for the first time since 1948, and to celebrate this historic event a special edition of "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" has been published. This unique edition of Beatrix Potter's much-loved classic tale has a specially designed embossed Union Jack cover, and will be available for one year only, making it the perfect souvenir for the Olympic Games and Beatrix Potter fans alike.
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.
