Post Potter, Beatrix: The Peter Rabbit Stories (Collection, Illustrated). v1 10 Oct 2008

Helen Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) was an English writer, illustrator and mycologist, she is best known for her illustrated children stories with animal characters.

In this book I've included the stories which, according to Wikipedia, feature Peter Rabbit as a main character. These are:

The Tale of Peter Rabbit (1902)
The Tale of Benjamin Bunny (1904)
The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies (1909)
The Tale of Mr. Tod (1912)

I've taken the PG texts but, for the first two stories, I've included the illustrations from other sources (which had a better quality). I think I've also improved the formatting and all that.

Any kind of feedback is welcome.

Well... I have the HTML sources, which I just converted with html2mobi, I guess I could send them to anyone interested in converting to any other format, just give me your e-mail address[*] through PM.

[*] With all images, it's a 6.4MB zip file, so make sure you can receive e-mails that size.

If you need HTML versions it's perhaps easier just to download them from PG Australia. They have very nice illustrated versions of the whole series there.

I just posted a tagged .pdf version here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...326#post270326

Thank you Jellby for the sources

I reworked the html so it should display nicely on any device running Adobe Reader with "reflow" enabled. What it will not do is look good on a computer screen...
