Potter, Beatrix: The Tale of peter Rabbit (Illustrated) v1.0 2007-09-15

Here is The Tale of Peter Rabbit (Illustrated) by Beatrix Potter

Quote:
Peter Rabbit and his three sisters (Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail) live with their mother under the roots of a large fir tree. Peter, who is an adventurous young bunny, invades the garden of Mr. McGregor. This is the same garden where his father had met with an unfortunate accident and was made into a pie. After Peter has helped himself to some of the garden's vegetables and wanders about to find some parsley to settle his full belly, he is chased by the angry farmer. As he runs, he loses his shoes among the vegetables, and then gets caught up in the netting that protects a group of gooseberry bushes. Peter escapes just in time after a group of helpful birds encourage him to try to loose himself one more time. He loses his jacket as he wiggles free just before Mr. McGregor can trap him with a sieve. He then ducks into a gardening shed and hides in a watering can, but gives himself away when he can't help but sneeze. After three more close calls (avoiding a cat and eluding Mr. McGregor twice), he finally makes it safely out of the garden and returns home, to collapse on the floor of his home. Mr. McGregor makes a scarecrow of the clothing Peter leaves behind. Peter's sisters enjoy a bread and blackberry dinner, but Peter finds he is still not feeling well (after having eaten too much and then spent time in the wet watering can) and is sent to bed by his mother with only a bit of chamomile tea for his meal.

The character of Mr. McGregor is thought to be based on a local resident of the village of Dalguise in Perthshire, where Potter holidayed as a child.

Check this out

my version...

I think the pagination is better and there are more pictures.
They are somewhat smaller though...

ps. I tried reading this to my daughter on my SONY reader.
She likes to play with the buttons which made the reading kind of difficult
but she liked the picures...
