In The Further Tale of Peter Rabbi t, a new tale written by Emma Thompson, Peter's adventures take him beyond the boundaries of Mr McGregor's garden all the way to Scotland. Here he meets the gentle giant Finlay McBurney, a distant Scottish relative, and much entertainment ensues.

Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, is a long time admirer of Beatrix Potter's tales. She has a talent for creating engaging narratives with a dry humour similar to Potter's own and is the perfect choice of author for this new Peter Rabbit tale, to be published 110 years after the original. Emma was inspired to set the tale in Scotland by her knowledge of Beatrix's childhood holidays there. Accompanied by a story CD, narrated by Emma herself.

It is not a Beatrix Potter re-make. The illustrations however and problems Peter inevitably encounters will be familiar. The CD with Emma Thompson makes it a great listen in the car or elsewhere if you are a fan of the British accent. However, it might make understanding the story difficult for some children.

I really wanted to like this, but I was a tad disappointed.
