Book Review: The World of Peter Rabbit – The Complete Collection of Original Tales

The classic gift set collection of Beatrix Potter’s original Peter Rabbit books.

This beautiful gift box contains all 23 original Peter Rabbit books by Beatrix Potter. Each tale is presented in its iconic white jacket and features a publisher’s note describing how the story came to be.

Ever since I was a small child, I have loved the Beatrix Potter stories, from Peter Rabbit to Jemima Puddleduck, to Tom Kitten, I have adored escaping into these classic, wonderful and beautifully illustrated tales.

This stunning box contains hardbacks of all 23 original stories. The box and books are great quality. It really is in keeping with Potter’s drawings and I can tell a lot of care has been put into creating this boxset.

The exterior has both whimsical colour and monotone illustrations of characters including Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Jeremy Fisher as well as elements belonging to Mr McGregor’s garden and I adore it. As you can see, it looks amazing on a book shelf. Yes, I know, I shouldn’t be caught up with how it looks but if I do say so myself, it looks pretty.

I have really enjoyed rediscovering these stories and, with Christmas coming up, this would be a perfect present for both adults and children whether they know the stories or yet to discover them.

This box has made me feel incredibly nostalgic and I am looking forward to read them to nieces and nephews.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
