Ultimate Peter Rabbit

Ultimate Peter RabbitUltimate Peter Rabbit by Camilla Hallinan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the kind of "picture book" that a grown-up can while away the hours with. Yes, I ended that sentence with a preposition. Too bad. The book is filled with photographs of Beatrix Potter and her family, as well as hundreds of drawings and sketches of Peter and his animal friends. The illustrations bring out the strong connection in Potter's work between the beauty and mystery of the natural world and the everyday, routine activities of life, with the occasional adventure thrown into the mix. It is a small sip of joy to look at the world through the eyes of such a unique artist and storyteller.
