Reviews

There is absolutely no reason for anyone to purchase this travesty. McPhail is an illustrator of some talent, and his books are usually of interest. These illustrations are not up to his usual standard - the rabbits are clumsy-looking, Mr. McGregor has unnaturally short arms, and the whole seems designed for mass-market appeal. It certainly doesn't hold a candle to Potter's illustrations, now newly reproduced by Warne from the original art and superior to McPhail's in every way - including draughtsmanship, design, and fidelity to nature; at $4.95 you can have an extra copy and get change besides.

Author Information
