Emma Thompson, Oscar-winning actress and screen writer, 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 which will be published 110 years after the original.
Emma said, "I've always loved Beatrix Potter, as a child and then as a mother and all
the years in-between as well. When Mr Rabbit invited me to write a further tale, I was more
honoured than I can say. I hope I don't let him or his extraordinary creator down."
