Marion Merrill re-tells the famous story in her own words and pictures. “When Marion Merrill the young artist who has designed and retold this new edition of Beatrix Potter’s greatly loved PETER RABBIT, was a very small child, her aunt read PETER RABBIT to her. The tale of the audacious rabbit became such a favourite in the Merrill family that the obliging aunt put it into verse and composed a melody for it.”
